I have just completely rebuilt the front suspension on my never been touched 89 si but I've hit a snag with the rear suspension. I was just getting started installing new struts but the lower mounting bolts have seized inside the bushings on both sides and I have no choice but cut them out. I plan on buying new lower control arms with the bushings already installed and I would like to read comments from those who have replaced these arms. I would like a good recommendation on quality parts and a tip or two if you can provide. Thanks!
[quote="zcash"]Best way to remove that bolt is by taking off the welded on nut attached to the trailing arm and just buying a new nut and bolt with washers for future instalation.
I have removed those spot welded nuts but the bolts are seized/rusted inside the metal sleeves inside the bushings on both sides (right and left) of the car. This car is an 89 and has never been apart.
.............anyway, I just bought a set of cnc polished aluminum rear lower control arms (bushings already installed)from Magic Power USA out in California. This was an E-bay purchase and the seller has very good feedback and answered my questions promptly. I paid $40.80 (with ebay purchase discount) for the pair including priority shipping. I don't expect any issues and the added bit of bling can't hurt either.
