Early Vs Late Control Arms

Post by Not Now »

Hi all, I just started rebuilding a 69 wagon and noticed the front lower control arms are a little different than the control arms on the later cars. I was wondering if there were any advantage/disadvantages between the two?

early sucks. they use like a shock bushing. Lots of compliance and even new ones. Late control arms is where it's at.
