Scored cheap rebuilt lower control arms... $26!

Another forum member gave me a heads up on a killer deal. The listing doesn't say rebuilt, but mine are so know that about this part for sale...

FCP Premium Auto Parts has lower control arms (99634105307) on sale for $26.11. Now they're $33, but that's still a very good deal...

Mine wear out in the front every 2 years for some reason, so this is a cheap fix!

your factory CA's wear out every two years? Or is that aftermarket?

Travis, yes, I'll teach YOU how to do it in my garage

Perfectlap, yes, factory. No clue as to why with my low mileage per year. I think it might have to do with the fact the car was wrecked before I bought it and probably doesn't have a totally straight subframe.

Looks like an incredible deal, and at that price I would expect they would have to be rebuilds, but I didn't see anything on the linked page to indicate rebuilds. Have you guys bought from them before? Credible?

I don't think they are rebuilds, just cheap imports (and not Germany imports). Let me know the quality if you get them.

Hey Randall,
How did you find the fit on these?
I'm also interested in knowing how you got the mounting bolts torqued as I find it almost impossible to get my torque wrench in the tight area the nut & bolt head are at.

Brian, I've yet to put them on the car. By the way, my mechanic doesn't torque them down to X footpounds... he just uses his standard wrenches and tightens them as tight as possible.

They look identical to new ones. They're remanufactured, so the fit should be the same.
