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.

Purchased this control arm in 2014. Noticed no grease fitting, but installed it anyway. Now, 3 years later, the ball joint is wore out. Mechanic used the word 'dangerous'. I'm going to see what Advance Auto will do with the warranty.

      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

          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 warranty cannot be transferred to anyone at any time. Parts installed on commercial use vehicles are warranted for 90 days from the date of purchase.
