    Does anyone sell replacement control arm bushings or am I stuck buying complete lower control arms?

    Of course they sell bushings for them! The real question should IMHO be is it better to replace the control arms or the bushings?

    I agree that is the correct question. I have my opinion on it, but not enough facts to prove it.

      I lean more toward replacing the control arms, then much less chance of issues. But obviously if someone is on a budget replacing the bushings with a quality part would be the next best option. But if I am not mistaken I hear a lot of people say the quality on a lot of these replacement bushings are not good.

        I'm with you. Also, the bushings are a special design. You're bound to lose something when you put a generic one in.

          Would you lose quality if you go with a AC Delco control arm or is that a decent brand for it? Or should I go with Moog? Also you can use the OEM Jaguar ones as well right? I know all my upper control arms are Jaguar OEM but was wondering if the same will work on the lower. I am just trying to find a good deal and to keep the same quality ride. Luckily the previous owner had replaced the upper ones but I will now have to replace the lower ones as they are squeaking very bad.
