Busy weekend, but this was part of it

Replacing a blown out control arm bushing

The old one was oozing its silicon goodness. and like many things that once had silicon but have leaked...it had to go.

I had to remove the subframe, which was supposed to be be a pain...it wasn't!

This is where it went. It's one primary of two mounting points for the control arm. My steering was getting wobbly and i had a clunk under acceleration, I hope this and the ball joint Im replacing on Monday does the trick.

installed. Much less work than I was expecting, but this, skiing, then back to this made it a day...a tiring day.
