I have 97 C1500 1/2 ton 2wd with a 305.
I need to replace the control arm bushings on my truck due to a shimmy in
the front end, I know this is the problem because I am able to move them
loosely without much resistance whatsover.
Firstly, I have heard that Moog products are the best, however there are
others available with lifetime warranties, do I really need this brand?
Secondly, should I replace all 8 while they are off, two on top on each side
and two on bottom on each side. I want this problem resolved and not have
to monkey with it again for another 75,000 miles.
Lastly, what is the easiest way to replace these, I know how to disassemble
the whole shooting match, however I do not want to bend the A frame trying
to push these out. Would a heavy duty C clamp and an extremely large socket
do the trick? It will be difficult getting to the auto parts store with my
only source of transportation up on jackstands, so I want to make sure I
have all of my ducks in a row before I dive in.
