  • Control arm question?

    Are the stock control arm's for an 89 steel or aluminum. Also I have offset bushing's which I heard didn't start untill 90 is this true.Can you replace the ofset bushing's in the lollipop with out changing the contro arm. And if so can you get them in polyurethane and how much do they cost?

    I believe only '90 and '91 came with aluminum control arms from the factory. So, you are right.

    I don't know about the bushings as I have not had to address that on my car...yet

      I believe the bushings are the same for steel and aluminum arms

          My 89 Cecotto has steel wishbones and eccentric bushes. (Got new alloy arms to fit this week)
