#1

is it necessary to replace complete idler arm assembly or just the bushing


#2

Sometimes you can only get the complete item…I would go with complete…bec if you dont then you may find your self doing the same job again soon.


#3

I have found replacements from $40.00 to $140.00 How important is the maker and quality?


#4

I think it depends. I recently had a problem with my idler arm, and the mechanic said the problem could be solved by just replacing the bushing. Hasn’t given me a problem since, and only cost me about $60.
