Anyone come across or know any more about this type of thing?

I have a random knock that comes from the rear under hard and fast right handers for example Redgate at Donny and Luffield at Silverstone.

Just wondering if this could be my issue  ☹️

Arms sometimes crack along the moulding line, look at the picture closely and you will see

If forged = no molding line IMHO

Why replace the who assembly, as it appears the bush has just migrated out of the control arm. If its still a tight fit , Id use loctite like 609 and press it back in.

If they are sintered/powder forging they will, They make con rods that way in BMWs and Audi and early Gallardos

Looks like my bushes have gone. What options are available?

If you have the choice between a Stairway to Heaven and a Highway to Hell don't forget the Nomex®!
