Rear Control Arm With Ball Joints + Front arm link

Hi,

I usually just pick up all my parts from Pelican, but poking around on different sites looking for rear control arm kit with ball joints and front control arm links. Any thoughts on the links below, fully open to feedback on other possibilities that have worked out well for forum embers here. Just donít want to order the part and then realize it was not worth the money hence seeking some feedback.

Link #2: Porsche 911 996 986 Boxster Cayman Lower Control Arm Arms 99634105316 Set 2 | eBay


Front Control Arm Link

Link #1 Updated Design Lower Control Arm Porsche 911 Front Rear Boxster Front | eBay

Link #2 Porsche Upgraded Lower Control Arm - NEW: Steering and Suspension &amp Control Arms and Related Parts


Appreciate the input. Happy Holidays!

The "upgraded" urethane bushings will last a lot longer, but these parts may produce some rattles and clunking after a year or so of normal use... at least they did on my car.

Avoid DeutcheParts the company and DeutcheParts parts from other resellers at all cost. Their stuff is total crap and they've been hammered here on the forum repeatedly as being a lousy company with lousy parts for sale. Their drop link bushings didn't last 1 year on my car with light use!

You know, it might be smart to buy salvaged ones in good shape from Woody (itsnotanova) like I did earlier this year. $25 a piece and they have lots of good miles left on them. The savings alone is worth it in my opinion.

Also, the polyurethane bushings will be squealing like a pig as soon as they become dry and will drive you nuts...
