Default control arms

well I have a 2006 sti and I need new control arms. well just the passenger rear one cause it was loose and I pulled a rookie move and slid into a curb and stripped it. my question is what are some pretty decent ones? I figured I'd just replace all of them while I'm at it

Are you referring to lateral links at the rear? Or the aluminum front control arm?
Are you sure that's all you bent?

yes lateral links. and yes surprisingly. they were so loose that I could tighten them with my fingers. reallly bad, it was too late I noticed that after I had it on a lift and the damage was already done.

You said you stripped something too? Was it a bolt?

I'm not sure exactly what happened or what you did.

Sorry, but unless you have a specific need, I would just stick with stock replacement stuff. I'm sure you can find some used ones at a good price.

Stick with the stock links and upgrade the bushings.
