They are a really weak part of the front suspension on the xi's.

If your ball joint is in good condition, buy the bushings and get them pressed in,
otherwise get some new control arms.

I've drained and filled my bushings with liquid urethane,
but I'm still testing before I want to post a DIY.
Are these hard to press in and out? I am having a hard time finding a shop to do it.
