Thanks, Chief. Where are the lower flange bushings? As to the 'rocking' I did see it the other day when I had someone else drive the car. Mainly when on reverse and repeatedly braking. No questions the LCA bushing are worn.
the sooner you start... the sooner you'll get done If it ain't broke, don't fix it.. Its always simpler to tell the truth...
