Used control arm?

What about getting a used control arm from a used part dealer?

I found MANY upper and lower control arms from local shops.

Would these be worth looking into?

(if they had good bushings?)

(oh yeah, they are WAY cheap)

It would depend on the condition of the ball joints. Uppers can't be replaced. If the lowers are shot and you don't mind getting a new one pressed in... Honestly for the price of new ones which include new bushings and new ball joints, the used ones don't seem worth it. Check out the prices at some place like Rockauto.com. Plus there is a 5% discount code listed in the forums.

yeah your right,

just going for the new MOOG parts is worth it. Just a couple extra bucks and worth not having to replace the "used" ones sooner....
