the arms are fine, they don't usually go bad by themselves, but the bearings might be bronze sleeve, might be roller but do wear out after a spell, and the ball joints top and bottom. Have it inspected by an alignment shop..there's no need to cut off your head when all you need is your beard trimmed~


Check in with the other owners on and Those guys know the good stuff. There's some sort of poly bushings that are recommended. I probably would replace them all and get one alignment.


change both uppers on both sides..there not expensive.and if you use heat take the assembly/s out first.....
