Bushings are cushions generally made of rubber or polyurethane. They are mounted on the Control Arms, suspensions and steering joint to absorb road shocks, cushion the amount of movement in the joints and reducing noise.

When the control arm bushings wear out, the frictions of metal to metal create can put stress on the joints and connecting parts causing clunking or rattling noises especially on rough roads when turning or hard braking.  The driver may experience poor handling and premature tire-wear.
