that is like keeping a spare gas tank. Those are things you will never need to replace.

And even if you need to change bushings or ball joints that is a job that can be done in one day not months.

If you are going to pay $300 for a spare a-arm you might as well pay a little more and have a spare parts car laying around. Thats just crazy.

I simply replaced the bushings and the ball joint, no need to replace the control arm. It is difficult however to find a good machine shop that knows how to install the bushing, you need the correct tools for that job, banging them in with a hammer is not the way to do it
