EL Xr6 lower control arm bushes

Any one know of EL lower control arm bushes poping out of their housing,As this is what my car has done ,I got a set of bushes for $100 and will fit them tommorrow,just wondered if any on knows of this.
The wheels are about 10 deg toe out and the tyres squeel as it drives,makes for a handul to drive .

Every other bush in the front end is nolethane and is like brand new,unless they had been fitted arse about.

I've never heard of that happening - would have to be some sort of installation problem!

Re: EL Xr6 lower control arm bushes

Sounds like an install job not done right to me, never heard of nushes poping out under normal conditions after correct installation.

yeh
The previous own had fitted these and they hadnt used grease and it anilelate the bushs,so badly that it wore down to the steel sleeve,as you can imagine the wheels were way out of alignment.

Cost me 3 hrs $100+ wheel alignment,extremely happy with the car now ,turn in is far more responsive and the tyre dont hole driving in a straight line.HA
