Customer Q&A
Ask a question to 1A Auto customers who purchased the product
will I need a wheel alignment after replacing ?
Julian P September 29, 2017
Yes, definitely get an alignment done. I assure you the ball joints are not in the same exact position on the new arm compared to the old one.
David C September 30, 2017
No it worked pretty good for me so far....
D N October 4, 2017
Do I need passenger side also?
Betty jo B December 7, 2017
It is possible you will need to replace the passenger side too.
Alex P December 7, 2017
I like replacing things in pairs, but if the bushings and the ball joint in the passenger side are still in good shape i"d say probably no need.
Wesley J December 8, 2017
Not if the ball joint and bushings are still OK. If it is an older vehicle, I would change both.
David C December 8, 2017
Not necessarily. That one would have to be inspected as well to determibe whether it needs to be replaced.
Alan S December 8, 2017
Do I need driver and passenger side control arms?
Betty jo B December 7, 2017
This would depend on the diagnosis you received from the shop or technician. It is recommended to replace the suspension parts in pairs to ensure proper and even wear.
