I'm installing new compression rods right now. I even bought the new cone shaped bushing for the ball joint. The cone shaped bushing doesn't seem to quite fit around the bolt. I'm afraid if I force it, it will mangle the bolt threads. Any ideas?

Update: Turns out I was sent the wrong bushing. A very similar bushing for the upper A-arm has a similar part number.

anyone know if the coupe rods will work with the sedan? i know the part numbers are different but the only visual difference i can see between the two in pictures is the stopper bolt that is in the middle of the arm comes with the coupe arm and not the sedan....

thanks.

Mine worked fine. Sedan costed 400$ and coupe cost 100$ and it worked. It was the lower control arm but others call it compression rod.
Hope this helps

Guys, just to be sure, the slop in the steering is unlikely to be coming from the ball joint, right? I am planning to use my press to press out the bushings in my compression rods and put new ones in. But I don't want to be having to pull all this stuff off again after replacing the bushings and finding that the slop is still there. But I don't want to have to fool with the ball joints either if not necessary.

Not unlikely, just replace the whole rod

Thought I would chime in here... Can the ball joint on the compression rod be pressed out like the bushing can?

Can anyone verify that the Nissan 300ZX ball joint shim mentioned earlier (40173-33P00) is the same as the Infiniti part W0133-1846215? The description for the Infiniti part is:

Infiniti G35 2004-2005, Ball Joint Shim (W0133-1846215) by GenuineŽ. Position: Lower. Ball joint seat. Note: Front suspension - lower rear ball joint seat.

(Found at:
)

I haven't found any reference to the 300ZX part being the same except for in this thread, but it's a couple bucks cheaper so I just thought I'd check!

Can someone confirm whether all I need to buy is DORMAN 521601 from rockauto in order to do this job? Says it comes with the bushings so I'm assuming this is a direct replace and no hassle? thanks

Bushings to be replaced 2004 G35 Sedan

I have the Energy Suspension Complete Kits for the Front & Rear Suspension.
Also Have the Sway bar links new along with new sway bar bushings. Complete Energy Suspension Rear Sub-frame bushing kit. Will be replacing the Front Compression Arm assemblies complete with bushings and lower control arms front. I 'm really chasing a noise in the rear of the car that kinda clangs & rattles when you hit a bump. Sorry I will also replace struts & springs while it's in the air...Hoping that I am not leaving out any thing..... thanks. I found the link to the manual and found both front & rear torque specs for every bolt underneath. Great forum !!!!! If you are new at the DIY stuff this is the place!!!

I used (white line ) compression rod bushings. They're working well so far.

I think it's worth noting since this write up, I've had one of the bushing go bad and it's making a noise over bumps/driveways again. Kinda disappointing.

The rubber bushings are never a good replacement idea. Gotta go poly.
