Looking to get front control arm bushings replaced

I posted before about this and I am thankful to all for the advice and offers. I had to hold off till now due to funds. I am looking to purchase the powerflex bushings over at modbargains. If anyone around that area is willing and has the experience to install them. Hit me up!

If anyone lives in the san fernando valley area and know retailers who carry them..please let me know...Figure if I am going to drive down to OC might as well get them installed down there.

Thank you all very much....after this I am looking to finally start moding my car lol....muffler delete....corner lights...rims....I have the m-tech 2 front bumper so I may just keep that on there.

it's SUPER easy to do... just borrow one of these from autozone, get a little dish soap to slide the new ones back on, and you are good to go. no joke.... 30 mins to do it.

I just feel compelled to present a 'minority opinion' on poly bushings.

Many have gone from OE to poly only to come back to OE. Since the poly last forever according to legend, I think that says something...something which you might want to consider.

If you read as many bushings threads as I have, I think you'd want to reconsider and seriously consider OE, or if not, the Meyle HD. Still rubber, but firmer; the perfect compromise, I think, and one which I'm pretty certain I'll do when the time comes.

I can help you out with that.

I'm not sure if you were aware, but we not only offer parts, but we now offer installs as well!

So you could come down to purchase and install the FCABs all at once.

We are now a one-stop-shop in the OC!

Give me a call at 714.582.3330 x8005 and I can set up an appointment for you!

I was hoping I can pickup some powerflex bushings either today or tomorrow. I know the store is closed but I really need them lol
I have a buddy that will be replacing them on monday( I wanted to have it done at your store but to be honest I am on a budget right now and can't afford the $200 labor cost).
If there is a way I can either purchase them tomorrow or maybe have them waiting for me on monday.
Thank you very much
