Yeah $200 a pair for new lower arms with the sway bar tab would be cool but that ebay ad seems super sketchy to me. If Doctor Diff was selling them for $200 a pair I'd buy a set. I'm not going to take a chance on the ebay thing.

At first I thought it was a refurbished original... but that round head rivet was not used on factory ones

What do you think of the “Made in USA” statement

Can you say that if you just press the bushing and pin in the USA ??

Wherever it’s made, it has have to quality and function correctly. Water will soon finds its level. Just a matter of who sticks their toes in first.

These remind me of the UCA’s that came out with little to no product release advertising... they just pop up in the market carried by an online general parts retailer. Out of the blue !

I read through the long item description, it said made in USA in there.

I don't believe anything in that ebay ad. The wording and the pictures appear to be either fake, or created by someone who has very little knowledge of cars. Buyer beware.

I emailed them about a listing they had about UCA's for my 51 Plymouth, ad said 2 pieces, so I was thinking 2 UCA's. They got back to me quickly, nope 1 UCA, going to correct the ad b3cause it's wrong. Email them they are responsive.

I did a little research on that, the e-bay ad states that it is from "Brand:
Rare Parts". After some searching on the Rare Parts website, I found right side only and 84.00 each.

Rare parts is a good brand.

They are the ones that rebuild suspension parts like Pitman, idlers, etc. They are the ones most people send their original T/A pitman arms to for rebuilding.

I’ve talked to them at SEMA. I think family owned still.

... now why would it only be one side?

... and why would they pick the least desirable/expensive LCA of the 4 possible Mopar Muscle era LCA’s

Strange.

Someone could call those guys.
