Front control arms "part numbers"

Postby tis245 » Tue Mar 28, 2017 3:55 pm

Does any one know the part numbers for the front control arm bushings and ball joints for an 89 lsc? I want to make sure they are the right parts before I order. I've got a second pair of control arms to load the new parts in before I take apart the car. Any other parts I may need before doing this job I just want to make it as easy of a job as possible.
Thanks from Dayton Ohio

Set of Moog front control arm bushings - K8495. Need two (one set each side)
Moog Ball joints - K8491. Need two

Also, just because you order the right ones doesn't mean they'll send you the right ones. I've had that happen to me haha.

Make it easier? - take the arms to a shop with a proper press to change them - turns a 2 hour swearing session trying to get the ball joints to go in straight into just a bit of a wait. The rented tools from autopepadvancezone are garbage.

Agreed. Make sure every component is included in the boxes, even test fit the BJ boots. I had a Moog set and paid to have the bushings and BJ's installed. One of the BJ's had the wrong size boot included, and Moog does not have any customer support. I had to decide on paying to get the BJ removed, to send back for a replacement, or find a boot at my cost and trouble.

Have someone else press the parts in the LCA's, that is a dangerous and PITA job.

Poly will do the trick at less cost but increased NVH. I'm honestly not sure if there are any poly sets specifically for Mark VIIs fronts out there. I know for sure there are poly sets for the rear bushings.
