    Missing 1 Lower Control Arm Bolt

    The middle bracket bolts, that goes through the bushing, are missing. I ordered it from the dealership, waited two weeks, and got the wrong bolts. As it as, 3/4 bolts are in both control arms. Recommend a site or hardware store? NAPA didnt have anything.

    New Control Arm: Stiff/Stuck Ball Joints

    Moog RK620073 control arm w/bushings and ball joint. Out of the box, the ball joint does not move. Tapped it a few times with a hammer, and it did not budge. Is this normal for our car?
