LOWER CONTROL ARM COMPLIANCE BUSHING

2000 Honda Odyssey

Suspension problem
2000 Honda Odyssey 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 177000 miles

my Honda dealer says the front lower control arm bushing is torn and needs to be repair. First what is the lower control arm bushing? And 2nd, do you recomend that only a Honda technician fixes this problem or can a local mechanic do it as well?

Hi there,

The lower control; arm is the main member that attaches to the bottom of the strut and the sub frame of the car (see Pic) the bush is the pivot at the end of the arm, any qualified mechanic can do this job, it is not that hard.
