Control Arm

Hey There,

New to the forum and not very knowledgeable about auto repairs, I would like to pose the following questions: I have a 95 jeep wrangler. I would like to know how you can tell if you have a bad control arm and if it is even possible to drive with out one. Thank you for your response.

Welcome! On a 95 there are no control arms. Both axles are attached to leaf springs. What noises or handling issues do you have?

some may call it overbuilt. my right foot calls it future scrap.
