Hi folks I have a dilemma at this time. My Deville broke the other night. luckily in my work parking lot rather than on the highway otherwise It would likely be totalled. The right control arm broke where the shaft goes through the subframe at the front. The tire went into the back side of the fender and if I turn the wheel the whole arm turns. The car is completely not drivable. I had to extremely carefully position the car out of the way and it has been stuck there since monday. I am flipping because I need my Deville and it has never left me stranded before. I have called all over and there appears to be no aftermarket control arm, and the dealer is discontinued. I know 96 was the last year they used that design but what other years did use it? As of right now I have 2 options 1. try to find and remove one from the local salvage yard. 2. remove the arm and attempt to weld a new piece onto where the arm broke and replace the bushings. I also cant find the bushings. What are strut rod bushings? I am wondering if that is what they call the bushing kit. If anyone has any insight on this I would very much appreciate it. These past few weeks have just been rotten and this just tops it
