Shipped to Hilo Hawaii in record time!
Hi I am a first time customer with 1 A Auto. I was going to purchase the lower control arms from a local auto parts store. I was bummed when i found out the price for one lower control arm for our Honda Pilot - $145.00 each side. When I was browsing on line I came across 1A Auto and found a pair for the same price about $150.00, with shipping, an extra $45.00. I got two shipped to me for less than what I would have paid for locally, and so I even got a set for our Honda Civic! Same shipping cost on one box and the time it reached here, was withing a 3 to 4 day period.!! I am coming back to shop with 1A auto and I also tell all my motor-head /gear-head friends about it too... Thanks 1 A Auto and also for the great videos on how to DIY. Aloha from Hawaii - Jon-doza

Hefty Control Arms
Very solid, hefty control arms. Fit perfectly. Spent about half as much as all the parts retailers in the area wanted. Arrived quickly. Two thumbs up!

Excellent quality part for a good price
The control arms came fast and they are excellent quality. The old ones put up a fight, but these replacements went in nicely. Would definitely recommend them.

2004 Honda Pilot Control Arms
These front, lower control arms were an exact fit to my 2004 Pilot. Installation was fairly straightforward. Ride quality of this 245K mileage vehicle was greatly improved. Going to install 1aauto front/rear suspension kit next.
