Need to ID this part, to order new bushing

Post by moogle007 »

Hi,

I had my Baja at the mechanic today, to get new brakes and turn the rotors. He sent me this pic:

He told me the control arm bushing is gone, which it clearly is. However, I can’t figure out which part needs the new bushing. I think it’s this, maybe?:

If so, I’ll order two, and get him to install it, one on each side. How many other bushings are there, though? Maybe I should do them all at once, as my new-to-me Baja handles like it’s a marshmallow. I think a new set of bushings would help with that.

Is there a bushing kit?!?

Cheers,

That looks like the part.
According to the FSM, the part you're looking for is #19 in the diagram

You are a hero, and have excellent taste in Japanese animation, too.

Guacamole is spot on with his assessment of the bushing. I would add though, having done these earlier this year, that you probably want to go ahead and order the inner bushings as well because they are likely in the same shape as the outers. I took the arms off (I did both sides) at home and took them to a machine shop to have the new bushings pressed in. It is not a job that I would want to do again as access to the inner mounts is a little tricky, so doing both bushings at the same time was worthwhile.
