The Urethane CAB's usually fail quicker than the stock ones.

Anyways, your alignment is probably off. I know they cannot do an alignment with busted CAB's.

And just to double check!

And just to double check the bushing that goes is the serviceable one at $30 a side versus $400 for the whole control arm?

A) Control arm non servicable at $400 something!

B) Control arm bushing serviceable.

Both bushings should be serviceable.
