2005 Altima lower control arms
May 13, 2018
My first time using 1a auto.com. After watching 1A auto help videos on YouTube for several repairs I have done recently, I made my first parts order, lower control arms for an Altima. Parts arrived in a very timely manner and were exact replacement parts. I was very pleased with the product, price point and of course the always helpful videos! Will be using 1A again for my future products. Thanks 1A!
Need not look for another.

Amazing Price, Fast Shipping, Perfect Fit & Great Quality
March 19, 2019
I purchased this product a bit sceptical because of the price being so low. But apon receiving the control arms I was very pleased to see that the construction was perfect, it matched exactly with the OEM parts! With help from the provided tutorial video I was able to install them in a couple hours. Saved me a thousand dollars from going to the shop and getting it done! I've already recommend 1A Auto to friends and family.

Great Price, Quality Parts, and Quick Shipping
February 24, 2020
This was my first time using 1A Auto. I have previously used some other online parts resellers that were a little cheaper but I have not been happy with the quality of the parts I was receiving. I gave 1A Auto a try primarily because I had watched a number of their how-to install YouTube videos which I found to be well made and very helpful. I was very pleased with the Quality of the Part, the quick shipment. I found other sites that had the part cheaper but I still feel the price vs quality that I received from 1A Auto was excellent. I will use them agin.
Perfect fit and no problems getting installed
May 22, 2021
I recommend this product and 1AAuto the price was very good and package well for shipping. Had no problems getting installed, now I back to normal. Thanks 1AAuto

What's the difference between the Dorman control arm brand and the house brand?
January 27, 2017
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.
January 27, 2017
Who make your control arms?
April 7, 2019
1A Auto's house brand parts are manufactured by various aftermarket companies specifically for us and built to your vehicle's exact OEM specifications.
