Was thinking to replace my control arms since i have discovered that I have on two different ones...yup the discoveries continue. Of course my knowledge and buying sources are limited...wanted to know if these fit (minus the bushings of course, just the control arm itself):

I know these will fit though, but looking at my options:

Lot of people used the n14 pattern part arms and swap the bushing .
you can get pattern arms for 35 to £45 (firstline QH Febi Bilstien)

I would see if can get a member supply you with 2 original oem arms and then simply rebuild them and seam weld them and epoxy coat if desired.

oem is more rigid arm (more so if seam stitch welded) and if choose decent bushes and ball joint you get better end product .

you seen thread and links from link section on the control arm ...

I'll try add control arm in the link for next guy searching .
whole arms new pattern part are on eBay or online parts sites easy enough.
If someone got a nice solid pair used ones in UK might be worth extra hassle shipping to you for rebuild if you want be fussy on quality .
I prefer originals rebuilt .
Also if can't get good priced ones shipped direct we can probably get someone take order in uk then onward ship to you perhaps .

Sounds good. Yeh i prefer OEM when it comes to those kind of parts. Also looking into building tubular ones as an option. What you think?

oem, media blast them, weld the seams, epoxy coat them, buy quality bushes and ball joint and job jobbed .
If you got good fabrication cheap then might be option but if not cheap then not going see much return for cost .
