Uro Parts has developed a replacement bushing for Porsche 911 and 914 front control arms. These bushings are made for easy installation using common shop tools. This video explains the reason why a replacement bushing has been so long coming and illustrates the installation process step-by-step.
Porsche 911 body schutz & front suspension
The bodyshell is done with stripping and has received its first coat of
primer - mainly to stop the bare metal rusting. Here I learn how to apply
the overpaintable body schutz - the rubberised paint that acts as a sound
deadener and stone chip protector. The front suspension is off the car and
I talk through what is going to be done.

How To Control Arm Bushing Removal at Home (without a torch) 1984 Chevrolet Truck C10 DIY
This video is showing one way I remove the control arm bushings from a 1984
Chevrolet truck C10 if you don't have a torch and with basic tools that
most will have.
After stripping these arms down and buying the new bushings and ball
joints, I will recommend to anyone considering doing this - DONT. Just buy
the complete control arm with all already installed and painted. The $100
you save (for 4 arms) doing it yourself is not worth all of the labor
you'll put into it. Plus they probably still wont look as good.

In this two part video series Otto will show you how to replace front
control arms and control arm bushings on a typical BMW 3-series 84-05 and
MINI. Note that while these procedures are shown on an E30 3-series (84-91)
BMW, they can also be applied to the E36 3-Series (92-98), E46 3-series
(99-05) and MINI models. Of the 3-series and MINI models listed, some will
look slightly different or have slightly different hardware but, the basic
points and procedures are the same.
Part one - Control arm and bushing removal steps
In this video we will remove the front control arm and control arm bushing
on a BMW 3-series (and MINI). Part-2 covers the installation.
For a list of the parts and tools used, see the accompanying BLOG post at:
1) Lift and properly support the front of the vehicle, so that the front
wheels are off the ground.
2) Remove the wheel/tire assembly.
3) If the swaybar end link is connected to the control arm (as on this E30
and most E36 3-series), remove the nut from the underside of the control
arm, that secures the end link bracket to the control arm.
4) Release the outer control arm ball joint as follows; Loosen the nut on
the top of the ball joint's tapered pin, but do not fully remove it. Using
a 2 lb to 3 lb short handled sledgehammer (properly called, a drilling
hammer), give the knuckle area a series of sharp-forceful blows. If the
ball joint's tapered pin does not release from the knuckle, try using a
pry-bar to provide downward pressure on the end of the control arm ....
while hitting the knuckle with the hammer. This can take a good series of
multiple HARD blows with the hammer. If the tapered pin is still not
releasing, you will have to resort to a "pickle-fork". Insert the
pickle-fork between the ball joint and the knuckle and use the hammer to
force the pickle-fork between the two parts. If you get the pickle fork as
far as it will go and the joint is still not separating, try repeating the
blows to the knuckle (as in the first sequence), with the pickle-fork in
NOTE: Never use a pickle-fork to separate the ball joints if you intend to
reuse the control arm (and ball joints), as the fork will typically tear
the ball joint's rubber boot.
5) Release the inner ball joint in a similar fashion to the outer ball
joint, with the exception that you will be hitting the cast area of the
control arm, where the ball-joint mounts into the arm. Note that it may be
necessary to resort to the pickle-fork due to a lack of area to use the
hammer, as a first course of action.
6) Remove the rear control arm bushing mount bracket by removing the two
bolts securing the bracket to the vehicle. Note the position and overall
relationship of the bracket and how it is mounted to the uni-body frame
rail, for the future re-installation.
7) Fully remove the nuts on the ball joints and lower the control arm and
bushing assembly from the vehicle.
NOTE: If you are re-using the control arm bushing mounting brackets and
installing new bushings in the brackets, follow steps 8-10. If you are
installing pre-assembled bushing and bracket assemblies, skip to step 11.
8) Use the control arm bushing removal/install tool to remove the bushing
and bracket assembly from the end of the control arm pin.
9) Using a hydraulic press, press the bushing out of the bushing mount
10) Using a hydraulic press, press the new bushing into the mount bracket.
Note if there are any alignment marks to tend with. The new bushing will
either install in the same manner as the old original bushing (alignment
marks, etc.), or it will come with an installation sheet outlining the
Now, click on to Part-2 and continue with the installation of the new
control arm and bushing assemblies.

Honda Accord Sway Bar Bushings Replacement
A fastener by fastener tutorial for replacing the sway bar end bushings and
frame bushings on 94-97 Accords.
The common symptom of a failed sway bar bushing is a clunk or knocking
sound when going over bumps.
When one or more of the donut bushings crack metal to metal contact between
the sway bar and the lower control arm occurs which causes the noise.
For 1994-1997 Accords the bushings are sold separately and are Honda part
number 51314-SM4-020. You will need a total of 8 (4 per side).
In the video I say you can use penetrating oil on the frame bushings to
make them slide on easier. I misspoke. Do NOT use petroleum based
lubricants (such as penetrating oil) on the rubber and only use silicone
based lubricants. Petroleum based lubes will harm the rubber silicone
