It’s time to look at the front suspension and replace my tired bushes! First on the list (thanks to a group buy discount) is the Lower Control Arm (also known as Track Control Arm).
The diagram below shows the bush (pink) and the Lower Control Arm (orange). On earlier models (pre-1984) the Control Arm and Radius Rod are different but the bush is the same.
I bought the Track Control Arm Bush – T3 / Polyurethane Vehicle Kit from Brickwerks. I went for the Powerflex version, instead of a normal rubber bush, which makes fitting far easier due to it’s split design. They also come with a lifetime warranty.
Here is the video documenting how I got on:
The main takeaway is to drill the bush as much as possible before attempting to pull it out as they are rock solid.
