How to tell forged from stamped steel control arms? 97 Z-71 3 Door extended cab. Thanks, Kevin R.
Kevin on Nov 22, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The stamped steel CA's are made from 2 halves of steel and welded. These may have a "flange" around the perimeter. The forged is a 1 piece casted material with no signs of welding. I hope this helps. Worst case, a quick call to your local GM parts department and your VIN# can clarify what your model had from the factory.
