What's the difference between the Dorman control arm brand and the house brand?
Teeone on Jan 27, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The real difference is the manufacturer, but some material used for the bushings or ball joint may be used as well as a possibility in the color of such components. We back our parts up using a limited lifetime warranty as long as you own the vehicle to ensure that you are covered in the event of failure.
