I am currently checking pricing on the replacement part. They range in pricing from $350 (Auto Whrse) & $850 (Pelican). Hey Boxs2000 & Boxster Boy, have you ever replaced a control arm? Might be a good project for a Wrench Day Soon! I have been eyeing the M030 suspension upgrade for a $1000 as well so I might just have the indy do all the work. I really want to avoid spending a grand to fix a squeek though! Was wondering if the bushing could be replaced? Call me if you any of you have experience with the control arm. I can get the parts pretty quickly. I have a Bentley coming in the mail. Check out PPBB also, I have been proposing a lot of questions over there and have had a lot of response. I'm at a point were I need to make a final decision and order parts. I am leaning towards purchasing the M030 and taking it to the indy for install and have him fix the control arm while he's in there. That said, I'm still up for a Wrench Day soon! I am a bit short on tools but do have the basics. Still need a torque wrench though. How about Saturday June 22nd for a Wrench Day?
Sorry buddy I'm at Disneyland from 22-25... send me an email with the part numbers you need so that I can get you a quote.
