I BOUGHT RECENTLY THE VEHICLE I WAS TOLD THAT ...

I bought recently the vehicle, I was told that all bushings are cracked and cannot be changed without changing the full lower arm, upper arm and control arm on both sides. Is there a possibility to replace only the bushings without having to buy all the expensive arms?

Thks Roy,
Bad news. Do you recommend a good spare parts supplier "cheaper" than the dealer?

Thks Roy. Will try to get the parts, I love the car but it is proving to be costly to keep.

You can change out the bushings. Even the ball joints on the wishbones. They are pressed in and not easy to do, but look up the parts online or on ebay and just take the control arm to a shop with a press (which they all have). You can find a lot of information in the Jaguar forums.
