              Product worked well. Challenge, with any control arm, is getting alignment for the retaining bolt. Used a come-along, attached to opposite side control arm mount, to draw arm into position and safely insert bolt. Much easier/safer than trying to push.

                  Product has good price comparing to other products I check out. I know the brand has alot to do with it but it has the same function. If you are looking for something that is good enough to keep your car going this is the product for you.

                  • Q:

                    When they say right or left ball joint, how do I know which side they are talking about? I have to replace the drivers side lower ball joint because it failed inspection. Is this the left side ball joint?

                  • Q:

                    A couple questions:

                    1) Dorman usually has a lifetime warranty on their parts. The warranty link on the website goes to the 90 day Advance warranty. What are Dorman's warranty terms on this product?
                    2) The description reads "bushings" but doens't specify which ones. Are both the anti-sway bar and control arm to crossmember bushings included and pre-installed?

                  • Q:

                    Does this part have the control arm bushing for the tension strut? I can't tell because of the way it is turned in the picture.
