lower control arm bushings welded in
« on: August 30, 2022, 07:32:45 PM »
some lower control arm bushings have tack welds from the factory to hold them in place.
any ideas on how to replace them without damage?

Use a drimmel with a cutting wheel and steady hands. You shouldn't hurt much depending were it welded. Your going to replace the outer  sleeve anyways
