Rear control arm re-bushing help

Recommended Posts

I'm currently rebuilding my rear end with new nolathane.

 

The inner part of the rear control arm appears to need a metal bush which slides over before the nolathane bush goes on.

 

Is this correct? I just don't understand why there's metal on metal contact if so...

 

Cheers

Yep that's correct. The arm is meant to pivot within the sleeve. I just applied a healthy amount of wheel bearing grease to the control arm before fitting the new bush.

 

I still use OEM ones as I read the urethane can cause binding.

Stewart Willkins sourced mine, they are Whiteline product, similar to above but are a one piece instead of two piece.
