Default Steel control arm front bushings

WANTED: steel control arm front bushings

I don't know how many people have realized this, but FYI...

The front control arm, FRONT bushing (not the rear bushing) are not available from Subaru. They only come with the complete control arm assembly.

I had pressed out the front bushing and replaced it with poly and now I would like to go back. So I hope that someone has some trashed control arms laying around that I can take the bushings out of.

Please PM me if you can help.

Thanks!

Thanks for the offer DS1, I may take you up on that. I hope that some fine Suby folks out there will donate their bushings from their damaged control arms so I can avoid the 4 hour drive to Chicago.

I have received confirmation that the Aluminum control arms use the same size front bushing. So if anyone has a useless control arm PLEASE donate your bushing to a worthy cause!

Thanks again!

is yours a sedan? I have a set of stock wrx sedan control arms that are coming to me sometime this week... I WAS going to press the front bushings out too since I need a different width bushing for my car.

Let me know; we can do straight up trade if you want...
