Having some suspension issues on the left front of my 01 is300. Read a few thing stating it might either be the lower control arms or the struts.

Anyone have an thoughts or information regarding this. It would be much appreciated. Thanks

Thank you all for contacting me back. It is easily turning left. You can feel the road, as in every bump.

I took it to a mechanic because i couldn't see any obvious damage to the control arms. He stated it was the lower rear control arm.

i juat bought two one for each side for $105 from 1a auto.

It does not sound like the lower control arm. Unless the bushing is gone. If that was the case it would not drive straight.

If you press down and release the front end does it bounce? If so it is the shocks. Other than that I would need a better idea of what feeling every bump is like. What size bump, etc...

So it was these? The number 2 lower control arms?

Here are what mine looked like when I pulled them. Bushings were shot... The one on the left (passenger) had corroded to the mount and required a lot of PB blaster and patience to remove...
