Wow, that's way less than I would have expected! Great price for a new part, and no need to get all dirty pulling it from a junkyard.

Funny thing is I called 7 junkyards and checked a couple online places, and only Sewell had it.

The junkyards didnt even have a GS. Only 1 junkyard had 1 ES.
WTF?
That's so retarded. Sucks bad for me. LOL

Anybody getting squeaks yet with these bushings? I had daizen sway bars, but I had to get rid of them because of the squeaking. They had to be regreased every couple of months and I couldn't handle it. This caster arm probably doesn't get as much twisting and sliding so maybe it wont squeak.

No squeaks from the caster arm bushing.

today i went to get my car aligned and he said the car would not align because of poor castor arm or castor arm bushing. Has anybody ever faced this problem before?
Also, how much for the castor arm busings or the whole castor arm?

I've seen both values mentioned; 122 in the online shop manual, 180 in my printed shop manual at home. I can't tell which one is the right one. I used 122 ft-lbf, and haven't had any problems with it.
