Yesterday the front control arm bushings were replaced by a local mechanic and all four wheels were aligned. The mechanic needed at least three hours to press and hammer the old bushings out and put the new bushings from Alex Pop in. I hope my new tires will last longer now with the alignement. The bushings probably will not need a replacement anymore.
This method saved me at least € 1500 incl. taxes, because my Fisker service center advised me to change both control arms that would cost me in total around € 3000 without labour… and after 80.000 km again… and after 80.000 km again etc.
For your information.
