pres, It is hard to say for sure, but it looks like you have a partially torn lower control arm bushings. I know there are factory designed cut aways, but one of them looks like it has torn around the cutaway. send me some better pics of just those bushing if you can....

Yup... I went back and looked at his picture and the next one more closely and I am almost sure you have torn lower control arm bushings. In all fairness though, judging from the deterioration of the rebber (as can be seen at the lower portion of the bushing) I would say this is really just the result of normal break down of the rubber from the elements and wear and tear more so than than any kind of transport damage.

I am inclined to go along with nyc. I didn't see it the fist time through, I was just looking for something bent or the like. But since he did mention it... If you could get (a) closer picture(s) we should be able to tell for sure. The top is deteriorating kind of strangly isn't it? Looks like it has cancer But I've never seen one that was kind of worn, I've only seen the ones that melt... er crumble in your hand... not your mouth...
