2003 Honda CRV. I’m replacing the rear lower bushes as they are 17 years old and the arm has shifted forwards allowing metal to metal contact (bushes 13 and 14 in the parts diagrams)
I have new rubber bushes but I’m confused as to the fitting direction. The original bushes were both fitted from the rear, i.e. both flanges are facing towards the rear of the car.
This doesn’t make much sense to me. What centralises the control arm/knuckle if both flanges are on the same side?
My instinct is to fit them going from the outside facing towards each other if you like.
I can’t find anything other than vague parts drawings online to help. The bushes came with nothing.
Anyone have any experience fitting this type of bushes please?
Ta muchly 🙂
