Research on Control Arm for Ford Thunderbird

The control arm on your Ford Thunderbird has two separate pieces. There is an upper control arm and a lower control arm. It is also called the A-arm and is referred to by Wikipedia as "a hinged suspension link between the chassis and the suspension upright or hub that carries the wheel." An indication that you need to check your control arm is a knocking sound or a squeaking sound when you go over bumps in the road. Uneven tire wear and the vehicle's tendency to sway back and forth are also early warning signs that service or replacement of your control arms or bushings may be necessary. If you wait too long the lower control arm can become completely disconnected from the suspension, making your vehicle completely inoperable.

Rear Suspension

To determine if you want to only fix what is necessary on your front suspension or if you want to completely redo the Thunderbird independent rear suspension depends on how long you want to keep your vehicle. You can follow some excellent Thunderbird forums to find out what parts make sense to change or replace together from other owners. Forums can be a great help because you will find people that have the same car as you do and may be experiencing the same challenges with their control arms, bushings, or ball joints. With their help, you can ensure that your suspension won't give out because you didn't do your control arm replacement when it was needed. You may even find a 1997 Ford Thunderbird front suspension diagram on the forum.

Watch a Video

Your best option to replace the control arms, upper and lower and the bushing is to do the work yourself. The price of the parts is reasonable but you are likely to pay a lot of money for labor at a repair shop. This is a job that you can accomplish with the help of some great online videos. Videos that describe replacing both upper and lower control arms are roughly 30-45 minutes long, so it shouldn't take you much time. There are also videos that you can find to describe in detail the replacement of the other suspension parts like bushings and ball joints.

The Cost for your Classic

The cost of the job is dependent on what exactly what parts you want to change. You can get the control arm separate or buy a complete front suspension kit. The kit will generally include both lower and upper control arms, ball joints, and bushings to make the change complete and get you back on the road. When purchasing your part beware of the brick and mortar giant auto part places, they also have a giant overhead to pay. Your best bet is to get your parts from an online parts supplier like PartsGeek.com. We will help you get back on the road fast. We only sell auto parts online. We don't have giant overhead and that means savings for you.
