What are suspension lower arms or wishbones?

The wishbone, also known as a suspension arm or control arm, is a triangular component that enables a wheel to move up and down in relation to the car's body. Many cars have an upper as well as a lower wishbone, connecting the chassis/body of the car to the uprights at each wheel.

What does a suspension lower arm replacement involve?

  • Mechanic jacks the car safely and remove the wheels.
  • Mechanic will inspect the suspension arms and bushes.
  • Mechanic replaces the lower suspension arm, if faulty.
  • Mechanic will advise if other components need to be replaced (like the bushes).
  • Mechanic will check the suspension operation and takes car for test drive.
  • Mechanic will make adjustments where necessary.

Is it dangerous to drive with a bad control arm?

It is dangerous to drive with a bad control arm and is not something to put off as it can fail completely if not addressed timely, potentially causing you to lose control over the vehicle. A bad control arm can also lead to further deterioration and damage to other components. It is recommended therefore not to drive the vehicle, and get help from a professional mechanic as soon as possible.

Cost for a front lower control arm replacement is on average £150, with pricing ranging from around £120 to £180.
