I took my car into the shop the other day and the mechanics told me I needed to replace the rear trailing arm bushings on my 1999 Honda Civic. I asked how much it would cost to replace and I was quoted $550. I asked how much the bushings were and I was quoted $35 per bushing. Well, somehow the math doesn't work out right so I thought I would try replacing the bushings myself, but have I have no idea how to proceed and in what steps.
I took a look under the car and I am familiar with the part, but am unsure if the entire arm has to be removed or if the bushing can be replaced while the arm is still attached. Could you provide me with the steps, diagrams, and tools needed to complete the job?
have the same problem?
