    I ended up buying MOOG R series control arms after the supplier guaranteed fit and stock size ball joints. $90 each. Hopefully they work well.

    Why is it that when I search online for front lower control arms on many sites I find several brands but when I do a compatibility check and enter the EX-L trim, the arms are not compatible with my trim model?
