You are most welcomePIE_CJ said:any ideas where i can get one second hand?
Possibly the junque yards
how much do these fetch roughly second hand?
I'd guess $25 to $50; eEuroParts is $145 new..I was reading where the Pontiac G6 used an aluminum lower control arm; could this be the same ??? And the G6 and the 9-3 are stable-mates..
is it a big job to replace it?
With pro quality tools, it is easy...
what is wrong with the arm exactly? the rubber boots are replaceable, all bushes are available and you can even do something about slop in the ball joint, the only thing that really scraps any of the arms is being bent or fractured.PIE_CJ said:i would of done that but mot is up next week so need mot it too
being an 'old hand' [if you object to that term do say so] in the auto trade you may find this simple breakdown of the annual compulsory test for all Uk vehicles over 3 years old in this VOSA linkearthworm said:And "MOT" can reject a worn bushing ?? One tough inspection - maybe too much so...
So what exactly DOES the "inspection" concern in your state, if it doesn't look at vital components for your car's driveability and road safety?earthworm said:I have two arms from a '96 900S, the joint is shot, IMO, on the left side.., the bushings look good; but the shipping is very expensive.
