Research on Control Arm for Nissan Altima
The suspension system in your car helps with your vehicle's handling and control, and the control arms are a vital component of this system. Without these, you may notice that your Nissan Altima feels less stable than it used to when driving. A faulty control arm renders the vehicle unsafe. It should be dealt with as soon as possible to avoid catastrophe.
What is a control arm in a car?
The suspension system of a vehicle must be connected to the frame of the car some way. That is where the control arms come in. These are attached to the steering knuckles with ball joints, and rubber bushings are on the other end where the arm attaches to the frame. The ball joints control the movement of the arm, while the bushings cushion the arm's movements against the frame. All of these parts are critical for the proper operation of your Nissan's suspension system.
When to Replace Control Arms
There are several indications that you may need a new control arm or other related part. The need for Nissan Altima ball joint replacement is usually preceded by drifting when braking or odd noises during acceleration or deceleration. These also indicate that you may need a new control arm. When it comes time to replace the control arm, you should also get a Nissan control arm bushing replacement because the bushings typically wear out faster than the arms due to the pressures the vehicle's frame and the arm puts on these rubber cushions.
How much does it cost to replace a lower control arm?
Costs for a Nissan control arm replacement can range from $160 to $390 dollars. Most mechanics will also insist on doing a wheel alignment after doing any suspension system repair or replacement work. Don't neglect this service because it will be important for the handling of the car. A wheel alignment can cost between $60 and $120 on top of the control arm replacement cost. In most cases, you will be able to save money by only replacing the faulty control arm, as the replacement cost is for each arm. If you are a highly experienced home mechanic, you may be able to replace the control arm yourself, but you will still need a wheel alignment, which typically requires equipment found at professional shops. It is best to allow an expert to replace the control arms because an improper installation of the new arm could make the car unsafe to drive. You can save money by purchasing the control arm yourself and providing it to your mechanic for installation. Bushings and ball joints typically also need to be replaced with the control arms.
