Default Re: I need a 2nd opinion on this Astra

RockAuto has a clearance on some cheap API control arms ($29 each). For the hassle, I would look at GM or ACDelco but those are 3-4x the price..

Whilst you are tearing up the suspension, the tie rod ends on these cars are fairly rapid wearing parts. You can buy with grease fittings in the US. Some UK bloke said MEYLE ends were bigger and more robust than typical parts so maybe worth some research.

If you want a project, the strut mounts rot quickly too. So those are not bad to change whilst you have everything apart (assuming you have a spring compressor and some time on your hands).
