    The strut rod bushings in my Valiant are in dire need of replacement. I need someone to "Walk" me through the process of replacing them. Any help/advice would sure be appreciated. Thanks in advance. Litz

    As far as I know you have to remove the torsion bars and the lower control arm pivot pin nuts and slide the control arms out .Early A's strut rod bushings are one piece that fit into the frame.Now is the time to also replace the lower control arm bushings.
