hi the pass. side front lower control arm bushing seems to be making noise... the car has about 153k miles now.. still original front susp. my question is.. if i get the front lower control arm bushings replaced with the newer style ones will that shimmy go away also or is the correction to that prob more involved than just replacing the control arms???

Since all 1993 w140 chassis already had new style bushing, it won't matter unless they are worn out. Also the lower ball joints should be replaced & steering shock tested.
