Want to learn more about Suspension Lower Arm replacements?

Read our short guide with information on costs, symptoms and more.

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.

Can I do a suspension lower arm replacement myself?

Unless you are a qualified mechanic with the required skills, training and equipment to do the job, we strongly recommend a suspension lower arm replacement is only carried out by a professional mechanic. ClickMechanic can help get you a vetted and local mechanic to carry out the work. Just enter your postcode and your car's registration number at the top of this page and select the work needed to get an instant fixed price up front.

What are the symptoms of a faulty suspension lower arm?

  • Car vibrates whilst driving, noticeable through the steering wheel.
  • Suspension feels wobbly and unstable.
  • When a suspension arm has corroded or has been damaged.
  • Car's tyres have worn exponentially.
  • Thudding or clunking noise coming from one of the wheels on the car.
  • Squeaking noise when cornering, stopping or going over a bump.

How long will a suspension lower arm replacement take?

A suspension lower arm replacement usually takes around 1 hour, but can take less or more time. Ultimately, the time that the job will take will depend on a number of factors, like your vehicle's make and model, year, as well as other factors. Select your car at the top of this page for information on job time and cost for your vehicle through ClickMechanic.

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.

Is a worn suspension lower arm or wishbone an MOT failure?

Yes, a worn out suspension lower arm or wishbone can result in an MOT failure. The suspension system is critical to the overall safety of a vehicle and it is therefore checked thoroughly for any signs of defect and damage by the MOT tester.

How often should I replace a suspension lower arm?

It is generally recommended that suspension lower arms be inspected every 20,000 miles, and replaced if necessary. Replacement intervals also depend on the condition of the arm and the severity of the driving conditions as well as recommendations from the manufacturer.

How much do control arms cost?

The cost of control arms can range from about £20 to £100 depending on the make and model of the car. The labour costs involved to get these replaced, however, can average around £100 to £150.

What is a suspension arm on a car?

A suspension arm, also known as a wishbone, is a component of a vehicle's suspension. It connects the wheel hub to the suspension spring so that the spring can absorb bumps in the road to make riding in the vehicle more comfortable.

Is it OK to replace only one control arm?

While it is not necessary to replace both control arms, it is a recommended procedure. This is because it likely the control arm on the other side of the vehicle will have worn at the same rate and may also need replacing soon after. It can therefore be good practice to replace both at the same time. Another advantage is that replacing both will ensure proper suspension and better handling.

What is a lower suspension arm?

A lower suspension arm is a component of a vehicle's suspension system that helps to support the weight of the vehicle and keep the wheels in alignment. The lower suspension arm is attached to the chassis of the vehicle and to the wheel assembly.

How much does it cost to replace the lower control arm?

Cost for a front lower control arm replacement is on average £150, with pricing ranging from around £120 to £180. Rear lower control arm replacement cost varies from £120 to £145, with an average of £135. Ultimately, cost depends on your car and what parts your car's manufacturer recommends using for the replacement.
