    Dorman Rear lower control arms

    Post  79treemaster on Sun Nov 03, 2013 12:09 am

    I purchased a new set of lower control arms for the rear.  I purchased them at Summit Racing they are made by Dorman but since I was at Summit anyways picking up some goodies I figured I would get them there.  They were like 43.00 each.  They are slightly heavier than the stock ones and already having new bushings installed it was a no brainer.   Dorman part number 520-571.

    You can also get 9C1 LCA's from GM still. PN - 10289786
    It comes as a whole kit in a big HD plastic bag.
    Both LCA's w/new bushings, and new mounting hardware for the LCA's and sway bar.

    IIRC, it was like $90

    I hope this helps someone.

    I have a set of the stock 9C1's at home off of the police cruiser and they are not as heavy duty as the Dorman units I bought. I must add that I wanted to get them at the dealer but my dealer said they were discontinued. I hate dealing with some of the dealers though. I take their word usually that they can't get them anymore but then here is something online saying yes they are still available.No
