Default Input on OEM LCA part numbers

The last couple of days I was digging through part numbers for the LCAs on the GD chassis and I found most of my info seems legit, I can't seem to figure out what the LCAs where made of and if there where any variances between them. I'm about 90% sure all the numbers are specifically USDM numbers but maybe some of them are also JDM numbers and/or shared.

I know there are at least two style aluminum LCAs, the straight one that doesn't add caster and the slightly curved one that does add caster, but there are a few others as well. Reading through some older posts on a couple different forums there are also the Type-C, SPT, and maybe another that I can't think of off-hand.

If you've got any information to add to this comment below. I know there's a lot of misinformation around about the LCAs so I'd hope to not spread more so it'd be great to link to a legit source but if not I'll add a notes column to the file. I went straight to the SoA website and went to the OEM parts section to check the models and superseded numbers. I'm mainly looking for whether it effects caster and what material its made of but if there's other information that's relevant or interesting that'd be cool too.

Also, does anyone know why some of these have small tabs coming off the arm of the front bushing? It seems like just right side has this small tab with two holes in it but not all versions of the right.
