Hi guys,, is the part I need no.13 in the pic
I'm going to say yes
yep. compliance bush for the wishbone.
that's what you told me when I asked the same question in my thread ;D
LOL ... well it's good to see you passing on the knowledge
cheers guys . . now for the next part of the question..
do I replace with genuine honda or upgrade to something else???
You can replace with polybushing, which will last long time but make the ride harsher and you will want to replace all on each side, personally I would replace with genuine ones as they will last another 10 years and keep the current ride quality.
I'd definitely go for genuine.
cheers again guys,, gonna order genuine parts
Yes that looks right to me too. Are you going to press them in yourself?
will be doing the same thing I do every time . . .
hand it to my dad and say "put that on there please"
Has anyone does this themself?
On the last MOT I can see there's notes about both front bushes have had it.
Yes a few of us have done it, including myself (although I didnt press in a new bush, just replace the whole control arm).
I'd say an impact gun is quite crucial you can change it without that but the bolts will just be a lot harder to loosen.
What do you need to know ?
What car have you got? As @SpeedyGee said It's easier to replace the whole wishbone unless you like to have the tools or like to have an impossible fight at your hands
Had to burn my old ones out - what an absolute curse it was in the end. Used my mates 20 ton press and it wouldn't push them free. If I did it again - I would replace just the entire arm.
I've got a 2.2 Diesel FR-V 2008 Manual.
I guess the first thing I need to know is what the bush / suspension arm looks like ? Any pictures would be really helpful as would any steps to follow to replace. Thanks!
Replacement of front suspension lower wishbone
Thanks for that Speedy, looks bit complicated for me though and I dread any of the issues Zebster had ! How much roughly does it cost to have it replaced?
Probably about £60 for labour at a guess.
I think I paid £100 for a pair of wishbones for may Accord
