Hi folks, Let me first say thank goodness for this website...I was about to pay 620.00 for a set of rear control arms (986.331.043.07) due to the worn out bushing that's making a helluva racket on turns and bumps, but found 3 alternatives to buyuing OEM.
1. Member "Boxsterfahrer" has DIY for repair of the control arm...(didn't try it but the posts indicated it works).
2. Member CJBoxster found an aftermaket adjustable control ams on Ebay...(go to ebay and do search for boxster control arms $250.00 for the pair), didn't see too much info regarding the longevity of this part..but he said it looked and felt pretty heavyduty, only draw back it's that they're adjustable so you have to adjust then install them.
3. I found a Porsche shop in miami that rebuilts the arms for 149.00 each Vertexauto.com (looks reasonable and they come with a 3 year warranty).
