Debugging Old Control Arms

update image

After replacing my control arms, I was curious to figure out just what exactly had gone wrong with my old ones. It turns out that the passenger side balljoint was finished and so was the rear bushing. The rear bushing literally fell out of the arm when I removed it from the car. I don’t know if the damaged was caused when I grazed the wall at Calabogie Motorsports Park but check out the pics for a comparison of the old vs. the new.
