Re: Lower Control Arm replacement: replace bushing?
Two things - 1) There's no adjustment per se on the LCA on these cars, it may not need an alignment afterwards. 2) No, not all the parts have to come off - the rear LCA bushing bolts to the LCA, so it's very possible to replace it without removing the LCA ..I THINK. Haven't tried, maybe not, but it's worth remembering.
335K miles on original motor and tranny (only motor work 2 x LIM replacement), Monroe SensaTrac struts front and back (new at approx. 300K miles), and Alero discs in back. LS fogs added with custom wiring. HID high beams, HIR low and halogen fogs. Raybestos Pro Grade front rotors and Bendix D747 ceramic pads on front.
Addendum: Rest in peace. Surge tank blew, motor overheated, I think she's lived a long and useful life.
