Hi Guys,
Can anyone help with a left hand lower control arm for my GT ? Not sure if they are any different to sedan ?
The one in my car is bent where the sway bar bracket mounts up to it, so it must have had a pretty big hit at some stage. I have new bushes ready to go in, so that part is not critical, but a straight arm would be good.
If anyone can help, I will be at Orange for the Gnoo Blass festival next month.
Thanks
Warren

Thanks Sticky.

Glenn I had them made. Turned out they cost a lot more than expected, but that's how it goes I guess. When the mechanics pressed out the old bushes they butchered the outer shell of the bushes from the rear arms. Unfortunately they were planning on using the crush tubes and shells from the old bushes when making the new ones. Front bushes ( upper and lower ) have been made, ready to press in, but the rear control arm bushes had to be made in the arms themselves ( hence the extra cost I guess ). I also had as set of engine mounts rebounded too, so I am finally making some progress.

I had a dig through my parts in the shed but can only find 2LH & 1RH upper arms.
Sorry Warren
I have a wreck that I could scab one off but won't be able to get to that before heading to Orange unfortunately

No worries Sticky.
Gunner has come to the rescue. Thanks Dean, and Peter for supplying the parts.
It was good to meet you today Dean, your efforts are much appreciated.
