HELP, need info on front lower control arms

Post by LT4Firehawk » Fri Apr 16, 2004 1:32 pm

Okay, I had a little off track excursion with the car, and bent the front suspension. The shops got everything in except the front lower control arm, which their GM supplier lists as an SLP specific part, which is on backorder. Now I've been around fourth gen f-bodies since 95, and I've never heard of a different front lower control arm for the Firehawk/SS.

Anybody got any info on this?

My guess is that it's just the regular lower arm with a different bushing (ala 1LE), but it supposedly is a newer part that supercedes the original arms that came on the car and allow for additional negative camber adjustment. If that's the case, I'd rather just get 1LE lower arms which are available, since I'm already going to go with Globalwest upper front control arms, which will provide more negative camber.
