Part Details

  • Location: Driver Side

This part replaces:

This replacement front lower control arm with ball joint is just what you need to bring back the safety and integrity of your vehicle's suspension and steering.

Specifications:

  • Fits LH (Driver Side) FRONT LOWER
  • Includes Ball Joint & Bushings
  • Replaces dealer part numbers: 15293665, 20977507
  • Direct replacement
  • Built to strict quality control standards

Note: If your vehicle requires a match to an RPO (Regular Production Option) code, you can usually find it on your original window sticker and sometimes either on the inside of your glove box door or the front, driver's side door shell.

Worn or loose bushings or ball joints can cause excessive front tire wear, popping or creaking in the front end, extra play in the steering system, and pose a serious safety concern. Replace that control arm with the loose bushings with our high quality replacement.
