front control arm bushes


Recommended Posts

I've just bought a 2006 Kluger Grande.

106,000 kms and the NRMA Inspection said it was a good car. No real problems.

The Inspector did say in his report that the front control arm bushes were worn and should be replaced soon.

As far as the rear suspension is concerned he said that it was ok but showing wear consistent with the cars age and k's.

Is this normal for the Kluger front bushes to chop out so soon ?

I had to replace my Camry front control arm bushes at 240,000 !

(And I get the Camry serviced every 10,000 k's, and the mechanic knows that if anything need replacing it will be.) 

I'm puzzled.

Cheers John

It is all depedant on the conditions the car has been driven in and the driving style of the previous owner.

The Kluger is also a fairly heavy vehicle, so the load on the bushes will be considerably higher.
