I can find the lower control arm bushings everywhere -- but no uppper bushings. Do I have to replace the whole control arm???

Dodge sells them complete, try after market. Rock auto or such will need pressed in and out

this one shows bronze -or- delrin bushings there...perhaps yours are all worn away...good thing we are replacing them...then~

aaah, yes the shock is on a jinky side bracket attatched to the control arm support~.....brilliant~

Aha! I can buy just the control arm shaft with the bushings already in place! Moog makes them for about $40 each.

I wonder what's the reason for using such extremely long bolts? probably their "stock" size...I guess~

good luck, my friend...you've got your work cut out for you (and a couple of pry pars and 2x4's)~~
