I have been searching the web like crazy and just can't seem to find new lower control arms. I know that have been discontinued but thought that they would have been aftermarket by now. I can't even seem to find compatible ones. The ball joints are new and are a bit loose. Had them welded for extra measures. Just don't like the bit loose idea. Did fine on a 7 hour trip to Yosemite. Gotta get the van ready for my next trip in March to Oatman, AZ. The van, AKA Elmer, is almost 100% restored. The LCAs have been the hardest parts to find new.

Also, what year G20 are compatible LCAs?? Thanks.

Thanks. But the 1aauto is for the upper control arm. And the ebay is for a p/u c20. Reads not compatible with with my '87 G20.

Same thing on G20350 manifolds. You can find drivers side all day. passenger side? Nothing!

That's crazy. Why is it like that? One side but not the other? Don't people know that you can't function w/o the other.

Bushings are not the problem. It's the ball joints. The hole on the LCA got just a hair too big from lack of replacing the worn ball joints from the previous owner that new ball joints have a bit of play. The ball joints won't pop out (I hope not anyways) but you can feel that the ball joint are a bit loose so I had the ball joints welded so now there's no play. Not too comfy with that. I did find a '95 G20 in the junk yard so I think that might be the route I'll have to go.

Have you tried https://www.carid.com I did see some there when I was looking for spares for my 1984 G 20 before I decided to convert to 4x4.
