Grand Cherokee WK front suspension bushings

Hi,

I try to locate the bushings for the lower A-arms of my 2005 CRD. When I installed my OME lift I had lots of fun removing the sized bolt on the bottom of the shock where the bracket connects to the A-arm. Now I have a clunking noise when driving over rough road surfaces. I checked the bushings and found the connection of the shock to the arm the weak point. Also the rear bushings of the lower A-arm seem to move when the rubber gets harder over time.

Does anyone have a source without the need to buy a new control arm?

regards

Harald

Re: Grand Cherokee WK front suspension bushings

Did you replace the sway bar links? I re-did my front shocks and put in Bwoody links only to find that a few weeks later a clunking noise. Turns out it was the Bwoody links...they also started rusting out on me real bad... I shot a video of it but never bothered to post it... I've since put stock replacements back in and my noise is gone... (Both front and back Bwoody links rusted like crazy....)
