LOWER CONTROL ARM (WISHBONE) BUSH SET
Deteriorating bushes on the lower control arms (wishbones) can be a problem on PT Cruisers. More so here in the UK and Europe than in the USA. It seems that our generally bumpier roads, with more corners, roundabouts and speed-bumps all combine with the PT’s fairly heavy weight to cause premature wear in the bushes. A knock from the front suspension is often due to worn control arm bushes where the rubber perishes or tears in the larger vertically mounted ones. This Energy Suspension polyurethane set replaces the standard rubber ones to give a much longer life. (The set on my PT Cruiser was fitted over six years ago and is still perfect.).
The set includes bushes for both sides. Click on photo for fitment illustration. For installation instructions click here.
Note: There are two types available:
BS5a - To fit this set, the existing vertical bush is removed by cutting out the rubber from the control arm. Any remaining rubber in the control arm is then cleaned up and the new polyurethane bushes fitted.
BS5b - This set is designed for garages or PT owners who have access to a press. Installation time is faster as the old vertical bush can simply be pressed out and the supplied new outer metal shell pressed into the control arm before fitting the new polyurethane bushes.
It is also a good idea to check the condition of the front stabilizer (anti-roll) bar bushes (BS6) as they have to be undone to remove the wishbone.
Fits all petrol and diesel PT Cruisers 2000 - 2010.
