My car is ten years old. I’m told I need to replace the compression arms. Do I really need to? The cost is $900 for parts and $300 for labor. Thank you for your time.
You probably mean suspension arms. What are the symptoms that lead to this recommendation? Please give us the make, model and mileage of the car and who told you your car needs these things. We can likely comment better then.
1998 Chrysler Sebring four door, 135,000 miles. I was in for routine maintenance and the mechanic said I needed new compression arms to make the ride more smooth and so the tires would wear more evenly.
It is a actual part of a multi-link front suspension. I googled it.My school text book had a picture of it,picture courtesy of DaimlerChrysler.I could see the potential for bushing failure.
