vendor for lower control arm purchase

My passenger side lower control arm is bent and I can't install the front sway bar I bought for my 72 C10. Where can I buy one that's made in the USA? I also probably should get new steering components as the old girl has close to 195k on her. Suggestions for a good place to buy these components would be much appreciated. I'd like to use all Moog components since they are USA but they don't make front lower control arms.

Not sure what your budget is but you might want to look into these. I have heard nothing but good about these. I don't have experience with them YET but my friends that have ridden in vehicles with the package have been very impressed. And their cares have the Level THREE package from Ridetech.

Those would be great but are out of my price range. I'm already building a Pro Touring 70 RS Camaro with a high end suspension. My 72 C10 is just a cruiser, not a corner carver :-)

Re: vendor for lower control arm purchase

There have been some part out threads lately that have the best replacements, the original ones available. I would look there before buying aftermarket replacements.

Did that last night :-)

I missed out on a complete set of control arms with ball joints installed by just a couple days :-(

I will be watching the ads daily now.
