Dodge Neon Control Arm Bushing Replacement
I replaced the bushings for the control arms in my 2nd generation Dodge
Neon. It's not as thorough as most of my videos because of the extreme
temps during filming, but it should get you through it for sure. Note that
this process is virtually identical for the 1st and 2nd gen cars. This one
was a 2005.
The 1st gen cars don't have the dimple in the floor for cutting, and I'm
not sure if the torque specs are the same so double check that. Also be
sure to follow the directions from the bushing manufacturer as they are
different between brands.
BMW 330i, 325i, e46, Lower Control Arms and Tie Rods How to Change out, Repair
How to remove and replace your steering tie rod(s) and lower control arm(s)
in an e46 BMW Sport. If your BMW's front end is clunking when you hit the
brakes or your car wanders on uneven pavement, it's usually your lower
control arm ball joints (built into the lower control arm) or your control
arm bushing. Under normal driving conditions you should replace the lower
control arm bushing every 60k miles and the entire control arm and bushing
as a set every 120k miles. I also replace the steering tie rods because you
are already in the area and it provides better clearance to remove the
lower control arms. Check your tires because if your front suspension has
degraded, you probably are experiencing uneven wear in the tires. Always
wear safety glasses or goggles and gloves for protection. Always get a
proper alignment soon after this procedure.
After hearing from other BMW owners, the part brand recommended would not
be Deutche Parts, but Lemforder, Meyle, Febi, and maybe Karlyn. The
Lemforder and Meyle are more OEM related and have proven to be superior

homemade press , Pressing in control arm bushings
Homemade Hydraulic shop press with 20 ton jack. Pressing in energy
suspension bushings and progress spherical bearings on honda civic lower
control arms. 2x2" square steel 1/4" thick. 3/16 square tube works great
too. The outside dimensions are about 21" tall x 18" wide. updates below.
Update added thick top plates and a base.
- The most difficult part in making this frame with single top and bottom
tube is you have to make sure the top and bottom square tubes is absolutely
parallel to each other. Not only from side to side but from front and back.
This is a little difficult , if you are welding , make tacks then check and
adjust if necessary. If the tubes is not parallel then the part will try to
come out when the force is applied. This is why the single top tube is not
so great idea or if you look at a real press it has 2 tubes at the base
where the part sits.
- If all you have is 1/16 thick tube it will work with most bushings but
you need to protect the top tube with a plate(i write about that below)
- If you make this , try to protect the top bar by using a plate, you can
see I have the black plate tied to the top tube , if you do not use a thick
plate here to spread the load you can easily damage the top bar, if you
look at the orange frame in the background you can see how that one is
damaged. If you are pressing in some soft or easy bushings then you do not
need that part but if you are pressing in something difficult that requires
a lot of force then use something to protect the top.
Wood press - there is a video on youtube about a wood press pressing in a
wheel bearing it is amazing. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=krbrm1bN-Mg I
tried wood to press out control arm bushings but they were so tight and the
whole frame flexed so it did not work for me but maybe you can make it

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.
