Flyball... join the club! Many of us have replaced the Front LCAs.
I have two front arms with bad rear bushings that can be sent (free, aside from shipping) to a new home if someone wanted to re-bush them; or if someone wants to develop an alternate bushing fix. You will find a picture of one of them if you search on my posts...
I also have two Rear UCAs with loose outer bearings that I replaced this past week.
I'll have two Rear Toe Links (Lateral Arms) with worn out inner bushings as well once I can get the rust-seized bushing collars to release from their respective mounting (eccentric cam) bolts on the rear subframe. This is one screwed up installation/implementation! Just a little anti-seize compound on the collars during original assembly would have gone a VERY long way in terms of ease of servicing -- but nooooooo!! . (Are there any line workers from Belvidere watching this forum?)
As a word of warning to all: Next time you have the rear alignment done, have them pull the cam bolts all the way out and juice 'em with ant-seize compound before reinstalling them and setting the rear toe. I've been hitting the bushing collars with an rattle gun (impact hammer) every night for the past 4 days and will continue to do so for at least another week before I try to remove them again. At $64 per alignment shop visit (just for the rear) I'm not going to loosen a single nut again until I'm pretty sure that I'll get the bolts to come out.
