Attention! Control arm bushings 3-20-711 unlike the original ones do not have outer metal shell. The installation of these bushings must be done into the outer shells of the old bushings. Do not remove the old outer shells from the control arm. Remove only rubber in any convenient way. Removal Unscrew the nuts of the control arm axis, remove the thrust washers. Remove all rubber without removing old outer shells. Remove an axis from the control arm. Remove the old metal inner sleeves from the control arm axis. Inspect the surface of the housing bore of the arm and housing area...

Removal Attention! Before starting a  work of the removing and installing of the control arm bushings without outer metal shell, choose the metal tubings (hub base and hub driver) for the removal and installation of bushing. O.D. of the hub driver must be the same as O.D. of the inner metal sleeve. Hub base I.D. must be 1-2 mm. bigger than O.D. of the bushing’s flange not to interfere the removing of the bushing. Forcing should be applied to the inner metal sleeve. Place an arm on a press, supported by the hub base (fig.1). Place a hub driver upon the...

Dismantling Before starting the work, note the location of the bump stops. Unscrew the elements of bump stops mounting to the frame and suspension elements. Rate the degree of wear and damage of mounting elements. Replace if necessary. Clean the bearings under the bump stop.   Installation Install new bump stops. Correct its position on the bearing exactly as it was for old bump stop. Fix the mounting elements of bump stops. Attention! Tightening force is according to the manufacturer’s recommendations. ______________________________________________________________ Removal and installation of the car suspension elements must be carried out according to the instructions of the car...

Attention! Some bushings have modified design, in comparison with the original. For example, the original bushing has an inner metal sleeve, but the bushing that is manufactured by Siberian Bushing can be made without it. The diameter of the inner hole is smaller than outer diameter of the bearing on the arm – this allows to fix an arm due to the elastic deformation of bushing’s body. These changes allow to use of the properties of the elastomer better. Dismantling Remove the worn out bushing from the arm together with inner metal sleeve by any suitable way (fig.1). Clean the bearing from...
