Replacing thrust (aka lateral) arms only
I've been gradually replacing suspension components. It would have been nice to do everything at once, but while striving to only replace what's worn, EVERYTHING seems worn!!
Anyway, I've done ball joints, control arm bushings, end links, struts and still have a slight creaking noise when occassionally stopping. I inclined to think it's the lateral arms which has been confirmed by the dealer.
Two questions: How is this DIY if it's the only thing I'm replacing?
While I'm inclined to keep using OEM for all my parts, I noticed that AutohauzAZ has Febi (which I believe is Boge) for a decent price. Any thoughts on using them over the OEM?
