I need control arm anchor bushings

Please, does anyone know a link to a site where I can order just the bushings for the anchor bolts on the control arms for a 95 Honda prelude. Id rather replace bushings but if I cant any sort of help will be greatly appreciated.

Re: I need control arm anchor bushings

Which pieces are those exactly? Are we talking front or rear, upper or lower? Do you have pictures of the pieces you're talking about?

Re: I need control arm anchor bushings

thanks for trying to help me, but I am looking for new bushings. Its probably a shot in the dark. Man do I hope I don't have to order the anchor bolts sets.

Re: I need control arm anchor bushings

You can't buy replacements, but you might be able to find a camber kit and use that as a replacement. Won't be cheap though.

Re: I need control arm anchor bushings

I know I've been searching for hours. It really sucks that they make you either buy a polyurethane kit that includes those or just buy the adjustable anchor bolts but they are like $60 a side.

Re: I need control arm anchor bushings

dbd6604 I want new ones dude. It wouldn't be any better to go to a junk yard to get them because more than likely they will be in the same, if not worse shape mine are in. But, yea you could be right. It doesn't hurt to look. Maybe someone already replaced theirs then wrecked their car. Its a toss in the air.

Re: I need control arm anchor bushings

Don't rule out junkyards or used parts from car part.com

At my house we scoured junkyards for an entire summer looking to restore a 3rd gen and ended up with a shell full of parts better than what was already on the car including rust free quarter panels for about $250 for both sides.

Re: I need control arm anchor bushings

What kind of shape are they in? I don't think those parts really go bad...what happened to yours?

Re: I need control arm anchor bushings

I guess they are in ok shape. Sometimes I just get picky and want to replace this and that all at once. Mine should be ok though. I just wish they had some oe replacements for them is all.
