Suspension Bushes - Control Arm Bushings
The control arm bushings system is an integral part of your car. Bushings are mounted on car suspension and steering joints to absorb road bumps, control the amount of movement in the joints and reduce noise and vibration. Bushings often take the form of fat, rubbery washers through which suspension components or the bolts that attach them pass.
Like most parts of your vehicle, the control arm bushings are going to wear out after a while. Wear can be accelerated by harsh driving conditions such as off-roading, environmental factors, or by driving with aftermarket tires.
What are the consequences of worn out suspension bushes?
Often when suspension bushes are worn out, it is quite noticeable and easy to identify. If you feel a loss of control in your steering, chances are your bushings are worn out. Abnormal creaking and clunking is also evident in worn suspension bushes, as they are not able to normally function, causing parts to break off and clunk while driving.
Worn control arm bushings can allow the vehicle’s front end to slip out of alignment and once a car is out of alignment one of the very first indications is premature tyre wear.
