    do i have to replace the upper control arm on a 92 prelude? i know on accords that if you buy a new ball joint you have to also get a control arm because they are pressed together. Are preludes the same?
    Thanks

    If its a question of money.....look into a few recyclers that are in a driving range and see if you can get a used upper control arm assembly. That's what I would look into at least

    I would just get a whole upper control arm....the time and hassle of popping the old ones out and pushing in the new ones......ka-ka poo-poo lol It will be so much easier and I am not even sure if you can just purchase those bushings.....unless you go with Suspension techniques or another brand.
