My lower control arms and the rest of the rubber on my front end is rotted. My car shakes at highway speed. I am thinking of doing Moog lca's, front and rear sway bar bushings and outer tie rod ends. The motor mounts are new except for the trans mount which I will replace.

I saw these parts on Rock Auto, are they the cradle bushings? Should I bother checking the dealer at this point and am I missing anything? Thanks in advance for the advice.

Don't bother spending the big bucks for the cradle bushings from GM.

I used all Dorman bushing assembly's even though the part number for the Dormans said they only fit the rear of the front cradle on my 98. They fit in all six positions and worked great.
Got them on Amazon with free shipping for not a lot of money. Especially compared to the GM parts.
The Dormans came complete with bolts IIRC.

I also got complete Lower Control Arms with poly bushings and new balljoints installed from Dorman on Amazon for about $50.00 each at the time. Well worth the money I spent. This was about 5 years ago. You'll need to check pricing and availability.

Beautiful, are there upper body mounts to or do we bother with them? I thought my guy counted 11 or 12 of them. Thanks for the quick reply, I guess you work nights or don't sleep LOL.
