    The cracks all seem to form at the bushing barrel area near the transition to the inner wishbone ends. Good lighting, reasonable cleaning of these areas and wheels-off, clear inspection photos should be required.

    Here are pics of my front 2 arms still on the car, 1 is much worse then the other. With a camera or phone to take photos, you do not need ramps or taking the wheels off to check.

    I have located and had delivered 2 used replacements which are due to be fitted this week. Delivery times from ordering were 7 days (from Germany) and 9 days (from the USA)

    I previously heard horror stories of 10 week delivery from America, so I was very pleasantly surprised. I got 2 good used arms with what look to be perfect stock bushes and hopefully good balljoints for half price of new arms.

    I know it's a good idea to replace with poly bushes but that would be too much expense for me at the moment to do all 8 arms. Now I know what to look for, I'll keep a regular check on them.

    Some or all of the Poly Bushings are installed into to metal bushings in the Control Arm , which seems a bit counter intuitive given they rust and expand.....
    Hopefully someone can shed some light on that setup ???
