The thing is... the way they are mad they hold water... it's not really the salt..

If they would have put drain holes in them.. the water could escape and not sit there to make rust... they have that lip around the outside that is just a water trap...

I can't believe it took calls to 5 wrecking yards to find me a control arm.. WOW

The new one is $200 to $300.. the used one is $75.... But I figured they where the same on all the trucks and vans up to 93...

I might get the Yeep truck back next Wednesday..... I don't want to guess how muCh this is gonna cost me...

I found out that the last owner made 4 trips in it. that's it... 3 to Florida and one to the Olympics in Atlanta.. so it has barely moved in 10 years... that probably explains why the ball joints are junk and the wheel cylinders dried out and leaked...

So we are thinking that the 63 000 miles on the odometer is original ....

As long as the springs are firm, you'll be fine.
