So this is what my girlfriend’s 2001 Jetta’s control arm bushing looked like. She had been complaining that “it sounds like my wheel is falling off”. I was a little intimidated by the idea of cutting out a bushing and pressing a new one in, and almost splurged on the rebuilt control arms for $60... but I’m glad I cheaped out with just a new bushing for $10. It installed super easily. Way easier than I thought.
And I know it’s an over used line but... It feels like a different car! And by not cocking it up I’m a hero instead of the guy that ruined her car. Feels good.
