This is a thread giving AOC members the opportunity to comment on any interesting threads arising on TypeAccord. Tonight there is a thread about a failed MOT due to front suspension arm bushes failing. It isn't clear which bush is at fault but the likelihood is that this is the compliance bush on the front lower arm which is the large round bush shown on the arms here which look like chicken wishbones accord control arm - Google Search These bushes always go sooner or later on the 7th and 8th Generation Accords within the life of the car and eventually the arm collapses onto the subframe. It's a problem because when these bushes go the car won't steer properly. The bush can be pressed out and replaced instead of fitting a completely new arm. The thread also mentions front ball joints failing. These can easily be confused with compliance bushes but are a completely different thing. A ball joint would not be made of rubber.
