Doing front end work, I had the lower A Arms off and was checking bushings and cleaning, Found both lower A Arms wobble on the floor and on the table, 1/2 and 3/4 of an inch... I have 1 new Arm and it don't wobble at all. What's the odds of both arms being bent ? and is this the first part to bend ?
Thanks for any advise.

I bent them both upper and lower arms on the leftside.I was going about 5-6 mph when I hit a railroad track at an angle and the bolt that holds on the ski got caught on the rail and stopped me instantly.I was told by a few people they're made to bend so that the bulk head doesn't get bent as easily.I also noticed that if the paint is cracked thats a good sign there bent.

Thanks F7firecat2006...The funny thing is the Top Arms look and measure straight, But there is NO paint cracking anywhere ? Also found the rt side spindle splines twisted... It's all bent !


Done...New ones on the way...
