Kia Optima Replacement Control Arm Information


Kias hold their value because of better design in addition to mechanical dependability. Invest in your car's systems by investing in the best top-notch components. When you have a high-performance automobile it requires top quality aftermarket and OEM parts. A valuable part of a number of car suspension types, a Kia Optima Control Arm is rather flat, triangular and fastens to your chassis and your wheel. The narrow end of the Control Arm affixes to your wheel in a ball joint while the broader end of the arm attaches to the vehicle chassis and turns on a bushing. A Control Arm is a vital part of your vehicle's suspension, for it attaches the steering knuckle to the vehicle frame. Most Control Arms resemble the letter A; the narrow end attaches to the steering knuckle and the lower end connects to the frame. If a single Control Arm snaps, it is generally wise to have the opposing arm checked, for it may require replacement. No matter whether you own a convertible or a sport utility vehicle, we have all the aftermarket parts you are searching for here at PartsGeek.com.

Research on Control Arm for Kia Optima

A loose control arm will reduce the quality of your ride in a hurry. It's interconnected with the suspension and closely linked to the steering. The ball joints and bushings wear out over time, causing the control arm to have more movement. This reduces the stability of the vehicle and can be a real safety hazard. Do not ignore the warning signs. The problem will not go away, unless you replace the control arm and its connecting points.

Signs of a Bad Control Arm

Normally, you won't feel vibrations through the steering wheel. If you do, it can very likely be due to a control arm that has worn out, causing wheel shimmy. If the vibrations are because of this, they'll tend to increase during acceleration and then smooth out once you reach cruising speed. Another impact a worn control arm can have on steering is with the alignment. The car will pull to the left side or the right, and you'll have to constantly correct the direction of motion if you want to keep moving forward. If a 2012 Kia Optima lower control arm fails, you may also hear clunking noises. Worn bushings or ball joints may knock when you accelerate from a stop or drive over rough roads. The clunking will only get worse. Eventually, the part will break and you won't be able to drive at all.

What Is a Control Arm in a Car?

The control arm is a front-end suspension component. It's often found in sets. An upper and lower control arm connect to the wheels via a ball and socket joint. Flexible bushings connect each control arm to the car frame. The connection points are often sites for wear, so you'll need a new 2013 Kia Optima control arm if these are severely worn or damaged.

What Does the Ball Joint Do in a Car?

It connects the suspension control arm to the steering knuckle. The part serves as a pivot point, and allows for the wheels to turn while remaining linked to the suspension system. This is why ball joint failure will have such a profound affect on steering ability.

The Facts About Control Arm Replacement

Replacing a control arm requires some deal of experience. Plus, you need equipment to lift the vehicle and to loosen and remove a ball joint. It takes some effort to separate a control arm. One upper ball joint, you need a 2004 Kia Optima rear control arm, alone costs up to $260. A control arm pair can cost up to $200, but the labor, taxes, and fees vary considerably from one location to another, and depending on the part and your vehicle. Whether a 2015 Kia Optima lower control arm is defective or your 2006 Kia Optima lower control arm has neared the end of its service life, you have a choice what is spent on the product. PartsGeek.com sells all the auto parts you need for less. Our low overhead is the reason behind our ability to keep costs so low. Instead of overpaying for parts at brick and mortar stores, shop from our exclusive online catalog and restore your suspension system for less.
