Left rear lower control arm has three attachments, one to the knuckle, another one connects to the shock absorber and the third to the crossmember
My problem is that the bushing for the shock is available but not the one on the knuckle, I will have to buy the complete knuckle which isn't a really bad thing but the ABS sensor will need to be replaced as well because it'll never come out of the old knuckle undamaged.
So, my question here is, has anyone here sourced out the bushing I need?
Again, its the bushing on the knuckle that the lower arm bolts onto.

Thanks!

Thats for the shock absorber, I need the bushing for the knuckle .
I measured it too, it looks close but the absorber bushing is smaller in diameter than the knuckle bushing.

sometime honda books names things wrong. like shocks and sturts are called dampers.

yes, you are correct. wnet back to the epc today and found that the bushing I need IS called the absorber bushing.
We verified that by going to the shock page and there is another bushing for the shock itself.

All good now!
Whomever named the part must have been tired or something

if the bolt comes loose. their ok to do. i did a set the other day. used an air hammer to drive out old steel part of bushing. but steel ring can be cut from inside and compressed to drive out. install new ones with a socket and hammer.

Can I get this part somewhere other than my local Stealer? I looked on RockAuto's website but they only have the rear shock absorber bushing.

I'm doing this project on Tuesday when the bushings come in: 52622 SP0 003: BUSH RR (LOWER)

I paid 33.27 cents from Lompoc Honda!! Who sells parts at list??

If I wasn't in a hurry I'd get them shipped from Majestic again.

Yes they're both the same bushing...good luck. my project took a few hours longer than planned, but would've been worse without the trusty sawzall

Bork, for the few dollars you'll spend on a new bolt...it's well worth it. Cutting the two outer bolts off was not an option for me. The two inners came off with some work, but considering their condition I replaced them as well.

Well, did both sides today. Not tooo bad. 1st side took about 1-1/2 hr, and 2nd side was about 25 minutes. (All the tools already out) Bolts were not bad. cleaned up well and applied Never-seize on them. Noticed the bolts fit loose in bushing, so they can rotate. Thats good. I was going to get bolts from hardware, but now I see they are special. Glad mine were ok. As luck would have it, now the shocks are screwed, due to extending, when jacked up. My honfda expert told me little plastic pieces break loose when fully extended & clog up the ports in damper valve & thus harsh ride. Service bulletin was issued from Honda about this. He told about a customer with Acura that had tires rotated, & cost $2,300.00 bucks. All four shocks got messed up when lifted up on rack. My buddy was in clear though, cause he informed client ahead of time.(still a bummer)

I replaced my shocks with the LCA job. It seemed like the logical thing to do since the shocks had over 160k on them. I did shocks, springs, LCA with new bushings and hardware for about $400 (and alot of cursing). Seems like you got the job done with minimal effort/expense.

As mentioned by the OP, the rear lower control arm has an outer bushing that connects to the knuckle which should be part #52622-spo-003. It also connects to the shock absorber. Does anyone know if the lower control arm Inner Bushing is replaceable? All I can find so far is that I would have to replace the whole lower control arm just to replace that inner bushing that connects to the crossmember. Thanks much.
