I think that translates into "bad control arm bushing" rubber busshing goes
bad= play in the control arm = "loose" control arm..
bushings are cheap, labor is intensive.. control arms are pricier, but labor
is cut drastically..
that applies to rear only? or front as well? I've been prepping to do the
front end on my e28 and I've yet to come across any special tools needed for
the front end, other than a ball joint separator and BFH..
the rears I may just leave to the pros.. and save pennies until I can swap
out that nasty guibo and u-joint along with the rest of the rear end stuff..
Sorry, I thought we were talking about an E36 in which the control arm
bushings are only in the front. I don't have any experience on an E39
or on an E28, but I'd imagine it is a lot like the E34 in which you do
remove the arms to replace the bushings.
