Control Arm Reviews - 1998 Ford Explorer
Dorman | 520-221
 


I used a phone number to call to order. Part was right. Fit well. No grease zerk however. 7 days to arrive. I had the time to wait. Saved me money. Would try it again.

Dorman | 520-221
 


Was a exact match for what I needed. Be careful though when I bought the other sides upper, I bought one that parts geek claimed would fit my explorer, it looked just like this, but set up for the opposite side, it wasn't even close to the right part.

I figured they'd claim it was my fault, and best case scenario make me ship them back the part at my expense, meaning my refund would be a whopping $20 or so. So I scrapped a brand new control arm.

This was for an AWD 98 xlt, recommend giving your front end a good look over before you buy it since their parts list isn't very accurate.

I had to replace my control arms and found 2 perfect matches on partsgeek that were exactly what I needed and for wayy cheaper than any other price I could find. I will always come back to them first when I need car parts. They are quick, fast, and easy to deal with and are reliable. Thanks again partsgeek for being awesome.
