help deciding which lower control arms and bushings
 
Ok installed the new shoes Hankook V12s and the shop noticed that my I am in need of a new lower control arm and bushings. why would I have to replace the whole control arm and not just the busings, I mean isnt the control arm steel or aluminum and its the bushings that go out?? I also have KW VS2 Coil overs so which bushings and control arms should I get to complement my suspension set-up? I will hit the occsaional track day but the car is also my daily driver.

meyle HD control arms, powerflex bushings. if its oem you cant just replace teh ball joints, however the meyle has pressable ball joints.

No, the ball joints on the stock control arms are not serviceable. The Meyle ball joints are made for the Meyle HD control arms. What mvrk is saying is that if you go ahead and get the Meyle arms now, then in the future you should only need to replace the ball joints and bushings.
