just installed the steering rack bushing and sway bar bushings and it made a considerable difference. I ordered the control arm kit and wanted to know if I should return them or install them. Any help would be appreciated.

Default Alignment

After replacing cater bushings, will you need an alignment?
I currently have daizens installed from a couple of years ago, and just recently read they are not as good as first thought. I'm planning on buying a set of new oem bushings and replacing them.

Yes you will need an alignment. The oem are not that great either. I would go with figs poly 3 piece bushing.

My clunk went away 2yrs ago when I replaced my rack & pinion. Then after replacing the rack, found out inner tie rods will cause clunk. Still to this day & 238k miles later. Still running strong & no more CLUNK!
Did you get the clunk only when turning sharply at slow speed?

I know its been awhile but trying to figure mine out.

damn I didn't even know that this was the name of the part I ordered from Sewell. I would have replaced the bushings myself. Nice write-up.
