Replace Control Arm Bushings

1992 740 Suspension Parts Numbers

Andy Berry » I need to replace the control arm bushings. I asked a guy for an estimate and he said ‘upper? lower? inner? outer? front or rear?’ really… I wont be going back to that guy but I need to know what to tell the mechanic I use. What exactly do i need to ask for, for a 1992 740 wagon?

billofdurham » He was covering all of the bases and some that didn’t need covering. The control arms are part of the steering/suspension and each control arm, one right and one left has two bushings which could be called inner and outer. I would replace both at the same time. There is also a control arm stay which has one bushing and this should be checked and replaced if necessary. The attached from VADIS shows the bushings, parts 8, 10 & 11, on the front. They are the same on the other side.
