1999-1999 VW Jetta Front Lower Control Arm Pair (8th Vin Digit M)

Part Details

  • Location: Front
  • Location: Lower
  • Quantity: Pair

This part replaces:

  • DORMAN 520-760
  • HOLLANDER 512-58513AL
  • OE # 1J0 407 151 C
  • OE # 1J0 407 151B

  • New

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

Specifications:

  • Comes as a PAIR
    • Fits both LH (Driver Side) & RH (Passenger Side) FRONT LOWER
  • Includes new bushings
  • Control arm is new, not remanufactured or refurbished
  • Does NOT include ball joints

Worn or loose rear bushings 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 those heavily rusted, rotted, or damaged front lower control arms with the loose bushings with our high quality all in one replacements.

One way to diagnose a loose, or warn ball joint on a control arm, is to jack the car up, so the wheel is off of the ground, then have someone try to move the wheel in and out. While they are moving the wheel check the ball joint and bushings for play, if it is moving you probably need to replace it.

Lifetime Warranty
