if you crashed and ur looking for a new control arm.
i have one off a sedan.
dont know if it is the same or not...someone else has to confrim..but i think it is.

if ur thinking abotu getting a new alluminum one...and leaving the lower left stock...that would be a bad idea.
i think alluminum is bad unless you drive ur car on the track a lot.
reason is....the alluminum is really strong
if you crash...the control arm will not bend and abosrob the impact...what will happen is that it will take down the axle, the hub, and everythign in that area.

i can let the lower right control arm go for 100 bucks plus 20 for shipping.

that is how much i paid and i didn't use it...decided that insurance was a better route.

The Sedan and wagon control arms are NOT the same because of the changed geometry. The Sedan has a 20mm (10mm each side) wider track. The control arms are just a tad longer to accomodate for this.

Visit: http://www.subaruwrxparts.com and call them or e-mail them regarding this. They have some of the better prices on the net.

The sedan also has the wider finders to fit the wider arms. The whole front geometry is slightly different. You my think it's not that big of a deal it's only 10mm but what else is different from sedan and wagon is the real question.

Unless you are ready to tackle the whole wagon to sedan suspension conversion and work out the details don't do it. If you or anyone else is ready to tackle it you will get pimp status from me.

From the 2002 Impreza/Outback parts list:

Control Arm Assembly,

Impreza WRX, WRX Sport Model (wagon):

R - 20202FE160 $225.72
L - 20202FE170 $225.72

Interestingly enough, they show the same part number for both the sedan and wagon.

I started a thread on this somewhere. My hope was that GG wagon control arms were the same as older GC control arms, 10mm shorter. If that was the case, then 20mm of extra tire could be added if those control arms were fitted to a GD sedan. 255mm wide tires would be pretty cool.

The shorter arms would also get rid of some of the extra camber that one gets when lowering the front suspension.
