Control Arm Bushing
The Control Arm Bushing is attached to the ends of the upper and lower control arms. It consists of an inner metal sleeve, outer metal sleeve and a rubber bushing. The control arm bushing is a hinged dampener that cushions the suspension. Its function is to provide a more manageable and quiet ride. Without bushings, the ends of the control arms will be connected to the frame of the vehicle, which would result in metal to metal contact. This will cause clunking, as the vehicle's suspension system moves over bumps and other deviations.
The bushings deteriorate over time affecting the automobile's handling and alignment. A bad control arm bushing affects the tire's vertical angle. This prevents the tires from making full contact with the road.
Symptoms of a faulty control arm bushing include premature tire wear and difficulty in steering. The automobile may veer slightly or wildly to the right or left, depending on the severity of the bushing wear. If you experience any of the symptoms mentioned above, you should consider inspecting your control arm bushing.
