Exactly as ordered
This control arm fit my G6 and was easily replaced on driver and passenger sides. The V6 model I have, you have to loosen and lift up on the motor mount to get the long bolt out, otherwise it is the exact procedure as in the video. I saved some $400 on this replacing both control arms with ball joints myself.
