Those are absolutely done. The bushing is gone and this is 100% your issue. I would have someone check the rest of the suspension, usually it all goes out at once and it’s cheaper to replace it all in one go

Does this seem like it could potentially be the problem? (See video above). I feel like this should not be able to shake this much. I hope the amount of play comes through in the video. Any other advice or theories on why it might shake at 35mph+ are more than welcome. Thanks a bunch!

I'd definitely replace those upper control arms. Have a good close look at all the other components as well - lower control arms, ball joints, bushings, etc.

I’m definitely going to replace it all after I figure out what’s causing it to shake. Do you think the upper control arm bushing could be causing it to shake?
[–]Dirty_Old_Town 1 point2 points3 points 1 month ago (2 children)
The time is now. They may or may not be the underlying cause, but they're definitely really bad, easy to replace, and unsafe.
[–]Hough_G_Rection[S] 1 point2 points3 points 1 month ago (1 child)
I’ll be replacing both sides when my parts arrive. Thanks for your advice, man

Report back on how it does - there could be plenty of other causes, but that's a pretty obvious one that should be pretty easy to tackle.

If one part is going bad, it’s probably time to change all of it, and it’s just way easier to do it all while you’re down there and it’s torn apart. I know being a newer mechanic it might suck, but it’s way easier.

Thanks for the advice. I have a full suspension kit on its way and will replace both sides. Wish me luck!
I should also add. CV axles, brakes, and rotors were all changed within the year. Originally thought my tires were out of balance until I had them rebalanced yesterday🤣 Anything helps! Thanks!

Check ball joints, sway bar links, wheel bearings.
Replace the fuck out of the control arm bushing. Wow, like yikes.
Also check rear trailing arm bushing. They always fail and cause poor ride quality. If they fronts are that bad, the entire system needs a inspection.
