No bushings in p30 control arms?

I removed the threaded caps from one of my control arms today and was surprised to see the absense of bushings.
It's just the threaded caps and a solid shaft. How is that supposed to work? Does it just rotate in the threads?
I have never worked on this type of suspension and it's quite different.

You should see some grease fittings. The "bushings" are supposed to be greased.

Two wrongs don't make a right, but three rights make a left.

The thing you call the treaded cap is the bushing and I hope you can get it back on properly. If you don't know about somthing as important as your suspension you shoudn't be messing with it.

Hi Ed,

If you were expecting to see rubber bushings, they aren't there. GM A-arms only uses rubber bushings on cars and 1/2 ton pickups. Anything bigger gets metal bushings that should be greased regularly.
