Great Replacement Arms
These control arms were a perfect replacement for my old control arms, perfect fit and identical replacement. The price was super reasonable at about half of what offers the same part. Keep up the good work 1A Auto!

A arms
I got what I would expect. A product that was appropriate for the job at hand. Seemingly an exact matched fit at a good price. One will never know until the car has been on the road 75,000 miles how well the bushings last but for now I am happy. thanks
