comparable to original part

This part looked like the original control arm I removed. The design and fit and finish appeared to be identical to the original part. I would recommend this part to others.

Comments about Driveworks Suspension Control Arm and Ball Joint Assembly:

The control arm seems to be good quality. FYI ya gotta remove the motor mount to get the front bolt far enough back to remove the old control arm. The new one went on seamlessly. Durabilty TBD

      Comments about Driveworks Suspension Control Arm and Ball Joint Assembly:

      I shopped around for a little bit, found that the dealer wanted a little more than double the price for this part. Advanced Auto had it almost half price and then on top of it, when i ordered online, i got an extra 20% off my order. Fit my 2008 chevy malibu classic perfectly. Ordered it online and picked up next day, checked part at store and looked good. Went home and installed it right in my driveway. Took it out in 20 minutes and had the new one in in no time at all. Great product and no issues.

                  This installed easy and final out is that it worked just fine. Took about 40 minutes from start to finish...and that was with knowing very little about it.

                    Solid part for a good value. It DOES come with the bushings so no need to buy/order them separately.

                      the only bolt on the control arm that comes with it was loose. I noticed a noise the third day of driving( 200+ miles). It had worked its way almost out. Could have been a disaster on highway. CHECK THE BOLT FROM THE SUPPLIER. Other than that no problem, replaced the other side same part, bolt was tight.
