I am looking at getting my front control arms replaced and i am wondering if anyone has ever had them replaced and how much a good cost is. Also, for the sticker on the timing belt... does it ever say when the timing belt should be checked next based on mileage, or is there a rule that the sticker's mileage at the time of check up be put on the sticker?
whee. You should try and get the m3 aluminum (Are they aluminum? I think so...) control arms. From what I hear they will bolt up, and they weigh less. Can't beat that. Dunno how much cost on that will be though. Useless post really. haha.
ok so i got the control arms replaced, and the timing belt replaced as well, along with the a/c belt, the alternator belt, and control arm bushings. now this sucker runs smooth... but as always, labor exceeds parts... damn i wish i was a mechanic - clearly there are more than one ways to rape a person. total bill was 844.26
