I just took my car to the garage for a noise under the front that was annoying me. Well it was the lower control arm bushings. It turns out the newer ones 'are' rebuildable. I think the rebuild kits were like 30 each. I don't know if these can be rebuilt without special equipment or not. But even with labor it was like the cost of one side for both.
I just got my control arms replaces about 2 months ago. They where both really bad. The bushings where not inbetween the control arms anymore. Now the cars makes practically no noise over bumps...its great. Cost me a pretty penny thou. I got both control arms and the bushings and some other parts that it "needed" and it was about $500. So if you can get rebuilt ones, GO FOR IT.

If your driving down the road and you let go of the wheel does the car pull to one side or the other? You might want to get an alignment before you go replacing control arms. Also make sure the inner fender skirt is secured to the body properly and isnt sticking out further then it should be.
