Basically, I got my tires balanced and rotated today and that terrible front end shake is still there leading me to believe I'm having a bushing failure... So where are they located on my car and how should I replace them? Also, I might as well check them all while I've got it in the air so are there any more other than just in the control arms?

Hi mate
You got about 5 a side
If you are going to replace them,
Go for polyurethane, slightly more expensive,
but will last and perform.

I recently replaced my tie rods, control arms & control arm bushings........worn tie rods would cause a front end shake, but worn ball joints & torn control arm bushings would also cause this too! You can check all this with the front lifted off the ground, wheels straight & steering column locked & unlocked.........grab the tire east & west, tug & pull, & check for looseness @ all those points........do a visual on the bushings #5 in link below
