Back WHEEL movement? Control arms won't be related to actual wheel movement. I'd imagine that be related to worn wheel bearings or loose lug nuts haha

However if you mean you are replacing the real lower control arms, its usually much easier to replace the whole control arm rather than replacing the two individual bushings. Check rockauto .com

Yeah, you'll pay just about the same replacing the bushings as you will getting new arms, maybe more if you need to have a shop put them in. The rear lower arms are just over $20 each from Rockauto.

That's not bad. The wheel has a front to back play. Wheel bearing is new as I had to fix the axle seal. It clunks too

Does the wheel alone or the whole axle move front to back? By front to back, I assume you mean towards the front of the vehicle and towards the rear of the vehicle or is it moving into the axle tube/out of the axle tube?

Sorry. It was done with all tires on the ground by gripping the tire and moving. Unsure what was moving but when you hit a bump it does bang and you can almost feel the movement almost like a bushing would be gone if you know what I mean. It's the only thing I haven't fixed yet.

Roger that. Assuming the axle bearings are in good shape, the control arm bushings make sense.

Still have to get these done. Rock auto seems like a good price, but when you factor in shipping its expensive.
