    Comments about Dorman - OE Solutions Control Arm Front Upper Left:

    Had previously replaced the upper ball joint and the boot split. Replacing the whole arm was not that much more expensive. Only unknown is how durable it is

      I replaced my driver side upper control arm/ball joint and lower. Easy to get to upper/control arm and replace. Looks just like the old part. Perfect fit!
