My wife's 03 echo failed inspection because of the bushings... from what I've heard and read, you can't buy just the bushing, gotta be the whole control arm. ok, that's fine... I shopped around and got 3 totally different prices. I bought the 2nd cheapest option because they could get them the fasest. I get the parts, the bolt holes on the replacement part are smaller the the original and the stock bolts will not go through. :headbang:

Anyone else have this issue? did they change the hole size that year or around then? Or the part I got is just not the right one? Any help/advice would be greatly appreciated. Got a holiday on monday so can't even order new parts until tuesday and don't know how that is going to go.

So I've bought sets from 2 different suppliers, but neither have a big enough opening for the bolts. So now I think I'm going to have to buy from the dealer @ $378 ea. why is it the aftermarket parts can't fit??
