    I have to replace both front control arm bushings on both sides. Are any
    special tools needed becises a spring compressor. Is this a job someone who
    can change struts can do? Any tips? Should the ball joints be replaced at
    the same time since everything will be apart? The car has 120000 miles on
    Thanks for the help

    You don't need to dismantle the struts to change control arm bushings.
    The ball joints are fairly easy to change and I wouldn't unless they've
    developped some play.

    Replace tt with t (twice!) and remove parentheses to email me directly.
    (But I check the newsgroup more often than this email address.)
