New UCA vs. new ball joint/control arm bushings
Is there really any reason (other than ease of replacement) to consider a new Upper control arm vs. buying separately a new balljoint and new control arm bushing?
Does the control arm shaft or the inner surfaces of the control arm pass through get worn?
btw - the bushings on my left UCA are basically missing...
