Transverse link bushing is leaking

11-30-2002, 09:32 AM
I had noticed that one of the bushings on the right transverse link is leaking on my '96 G20. Service manual suggests replacing the transverse link assembly as a whole, which kind of sucks because they aren't cheap. I was wondering what the consequences would be if I ignore the problem?
Also, I know that camber on that wheel is a little out of spec (by 0.3), and it's not adjustable. Would the damaged bushing cause the change in alignment?
Thanks a lot for your input!!!

if you ignor it it will get louder and louder and then squeak all the time. Yes a damaged bushing may be to blame for the alignment being off. No other major probs with not attending to it.

Thanks for your reply...I had already replaced the control arm (got it used from a junk yard), and had the car realigned at a quality tire shop...The alignment is within factory specs, now.
Thanks again!
