just had a mate find a prob for me, my front control arm is loose. he only had a 30 second look and said that it may be a bush or a bolt. he didnt know how much it would cost to fix. So i was wanting to know what i am looking at to have bush/bolt replaced. and could some one give me a price to fix a "worst case scenario" problem.
Also i am getting my springs changed some time next week. will the loose control arm affect me being able to swap springs over?

Cheers.

no wont be a prob with the springs
it might be upper or lower ball joints

could be inner or outer bush on control arm
could be outer bush on strut bar

I would say to change all those would be $500+ on a good day
