(1) Can lower control bushings be changed independently be changed without changing the entire lower control arm? I have been told the bushing, alone, is not available. (2) Also, the boots on the rear struts have loosened exposing the strut piston rod. Can the boots be changed and/or boots an integral part of new struts? I've been told that new struts do not include boots. And finally then, are the boots necessary? (3) Is there an oil marketed that has a 'red' tint? I have a small leak/drip somewhere on the right side of my engine? The tint is 'red' as in transmission fluid, but fluid levels in both my transmission and power steering remain full.
