Hi

Wondering what you guys would do between buying new FRONT lower control arms or just update the the bushings and ball joints?
I'm more focused on comfort/street, vs racing hardware.

I just finished a REAR LCA install which was quite a pain - but great learning experience!

Thanks!
Dan

I'd purchase new control arms. I think by the time I was done running them around to somebody with a press for the ball joints/ bushings...and/or beating them in/out myself if I were to get my vise mounted, I'd look back and wish I'd just bought them.

Removing and installing the bushings is a pain. I did it without taking them to anyone, but it was a much bigger job them I gave it credit. If you are going to replace the old bushings with factory style I'd just buy the new control arm and call it good.
