  1. I am getting my 1998 Camry CSX sedan ready to be registered for my teenage sons. Owned since new and has been sitting in the shed for about 2 years and has about 205,000 kms on the odometer. I did not expect any issues but the roadworthy inspection has identified that the rear bushings on both front lower control arms are torn and the rear sway bar bushings are worn. Quite surprised but did not know that control arms have an estimated life of 90,000 -100,00 miles.. Rear swaybar bushings were very worn so much so that the swaybar could be easily moved in a sideways motion. Next checked the lower control arm as per a YouTube video method of car wheels fully turned to the right or left then have an assistant jiggle the steering wheel. Nothing obviously wrong. When the vehicle was jacked up and the wheel removed, then I could see the slight tear in the control arm bushing. I had a bit of a struggle loosening the bolts especially the one for the rear bushing. Certainly cursing that [Chris Fix] YouTube video where he made it look all so easy using a breaker bar. Attached video mentions the torque settings for the different bolts. Explains why I am feeling a bit sore and also appreciating having quality tools. New control arms from eBay seller should arrive in the next few days. Certainly hoping removal and installation of the control arms goes as smoothly as the video. Now going to have a closer inspection of the control arms and sway bar bushings on my other vehicles.
