Vehicle Fit

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


  • Fits either LH (Driver Side) or RH (Passenger Side) FRONT LOWER REARWARD
  • Includes bushings
  • Direct replacement
  • Built to strict quality control standards

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 heavily rusted, rotted, or damaged control arm with the loose bushings with our high quality replacement.

Our control arms are designed to be direct replacements for the original factory parts.  They are 100% brand new and require no modifications for installation.  No special tools are required because all of the bushings come pre-installed.
