Re: [DML] Suppliers of lower control arms?



The reason I ask is because I recently encountered an owner who
suffered that particular failure. When I took my car out of service
early 2005, another owner had just suffered the same fate. How many
have occurred in the interim?

What concerns me about the fellow's control arm this past weekend was
its overall condition: some surface rust but nothing cancerous. The
site of failure exhibited no external cause. The interior of the split
looked like pristine shiny metal. It must be a fatigue issue, not a
corrosion issue. 

As I was pulling my G's in some tight turns on the way home, I decided
that would be an inopportune time to suffer the same fate. 

Hence my desire to replace the lower control arms as a preventative
measure.

BTW: The owner's split occurred just where your reinforcing plate ends
-- that's why I'm concerned about additional reinforcement (anything
extending further on the inside?).
