Control Arm Bush Repair & Replacement in Hamilton

What are control arm bushings?Control arm bushing replacement Hamilton NZ

Control arm bushings are an important part of your car’s suspension system. Their purpose is to secure the control arm to the chassis of your car. There are two control arms in the suspension―upper and lower―and they contain a rubber bushing at each end.

Control arm bushings are made of rubber so that the arm can be secured but a certain amount of movement can still take place. Due to the constant levels of stress they are under, the control arm bushings can be prone to cracking over time. When the control arm bushings start to fail, the stability and safety of your car may be affected. A new set of control arm bushings allows for improved handling, control and alignment while driving. This improves your overall comfort and safety while driving.

If your vehicles control arm bushes are worn, cracked, leaking or damaged in any way then your vehicle will fail a Warrant of Fitness (WoF), and need to have then replaced.

Symptoms of worn control arm bushings:

Less responsive steering – The first problem you will notice is that your steering doesn’t feel right. Your steering wheel will be less responsive, and may even start tracking to one side on its own at higher speeds.

Vibrating steering wheel -Your car’s steering wheel may begin to vibrate at higher speeds. This can affect your control over the vehicle and make driving feel a lot less stable.

Reduced driving comfort – Damaged control arm bushes will affect your car’s ability to absorb impacts. This can lead to bumps and vibrations being felt throughout your vehicle.

Unstable braking – The stability of your car’s braking can be affected by a faulty control arm bush. Your brakes will be unpredictable, often working faster or slower than normal.
