'05 needs new control arms?
I'm the original owner of a 6-speed 2005 GTO with nearly 100k on the odometer. Took the car to the dealer today for two things: 1) Alignment's out again; and 2) a mushy clutch pedal accompanied by notchy/balky gear changes.
My service guy just called and delivered the news: On the alignment problem, I need two new control arms ($500 each) and two insulators ($425 each). Apparently, you can't just replace the worn-out bushings on the control arms--you have to get the entire part. On the clutch issue, my clutch master cylinder's leaking and needs to be replaced ($425).
I've had this same service writer for years and he's been good to me, so I do trust him. And I'll tell you that the front end HAS been kinda "floaty" lately. It just surprised me to learn that replacing worn bushings means buying the entire control arm, plus the insulators. Does that seem right?
