? Re: 99 rear control arms

Recommended Posts

1999 cab. Trying to replace the lower and upper right rear control arms. The ones that look like a doublesided box end wrench.

Question 1. Are the upper n lower the same part?

2. Are the control arms from left to right side interchangeable?

3. Considering that these are not "wearable" items; does it matter if I replace with new or used?

4. Part number? (they are not hear, so I can't just go look)

Thank you in advance.

Thank you Loren,

From your diagram I may be mistaken as to one of the pieces.

It looks like "8" is definitely the top arm that I am looking for, but the lower arm, that run under 8 and behind the hub might be item "13" I might be wrong that it was boxed end on both sides. It was dark when I looked and I was looking toward the interior of the area. Does 13 run parallel to 8 but underneath?

Thanks again.

Item 13 is underneath but it is very different as it has a 90 degree twist.

If you can clarify what items you need I will get you part numbers.

It was 13 and 8. Now I have another question. I found a source that has all control arms but they are from the right side rear as opposed to left side rear. Are these parts different from left rear to right rear? If so then I still do need the part numbers; if not then I think I have found my solution plus a couple of spares. Thank you.

Both sides are the same on those two parts but for your model year car they need to be MY03 or older to fit.

I would also suggest matching part numbers if you use a newer part.
