Need Help; need shop open on sat
 
Hello All,

i need some help. my car, 540ia is making a horible noise in the rear end. its on the rear passanger side.

Anyways i am a customer of lakeside howver they are closed tomorrow, saturday and i need the car fixed.

Please help.

Thanks,
Brad

Ok.

Forgot to reply back.

apparently my right lower control arm is gone, my stabilizer link as well.

also there are two bushings that i would call stabilizer bar bushings. i have tried locating these parts online but i think i am using the wrong name for them.

Also does anyone know how hard this is to do?

Lower control arm:

Rear sway bar & links:

Rear sway bar end links are easy to do. I changed mine this summer.

Lower control arm doesn't look to hard, but the part is expensive!!
