Mismatched ACD Control Arms

Does AC Delco only sell mismatched sets of control arms?
One is a TRW and the other is one of those heavyweight ones.
How do I go about getting a matched set? Do I need to resort to buying Moog...

Re: Wagon owners - has anyone used different trunk struts?

I just went into the driveway and opened the hatch. The original 1998 Springhill assembly line factory-installed struts are working like new. Although, it is never a bad idea to have a set of spares.
