I have a 2002 lincoln ls v6. I need to replace lower control arm bushings. Can I use the jag s type for the v6 like it said you could for the v8. And how would I go about doing it- I've located a place to buy the bushings only.

I have a 2005 LS V8 and whenever I go above 40mph the right rear wheel wobbles and causes the entire car to shake/vibrate. The shaking and vibrating doesn't stop until I slow below 40mph. I think the ball joint is my issue but I'm not sure. Could somebody help? Furthermore, does anyone know where I can get a rear ball joint from? Thanks in advance for any help.

Sounds more like a wheel bearing. I don't think there's a rear ball joint.

I own an 02' LS 3.0. Recently I was turned down inspection do to the steering rack leaking. I had the work done on the car got the sticker and a week later it seemed to be leaking worse. I could actually see the fluid on the ground where I had never noticed it before. Took the car back and had another rack installed. this time it was placed off center. I could turn the wheel right and go in a circle standing still basically and could hardly turn left so again I brought it back. The mechanic has told me that alot/all of the replacement racks made for my car were built defective and that his supplier is having one made... I personally find this hard to swallow and I cant find anything online about it. They have had my car for about 2 months now. does this replacement part defect hold water or should I get a refund and go elsewhere???? thanks in advance.

Your mechanic is full of it. I'd get my car out of there as soon as possible.
