About Lower Control Arm Bushing
Lower control arm bushings are an integral part of the vehicle suspension system. These bushings are made of rubber which is able to separate the faces of two objects at the same time allowing some movement. When the car moves over bumpy roads and surfaces, the suspension parts move easily due to the lower control arm bushings. Because the rubber is flexible, it helps to minimize the noise of the transmission and the small vibrations that run through the chassis of the vehicle.
