    If you have both the other one is almost rusted through as well. What do you want for them?

    I have them.
    Just the arm or did you want the complete assembly?
    I also have new bushings available.

    I need the arms, ball joints and bushings. If the ones in the arms you have are not bad, I'll just use those, but if they are failing I guess I'll have to get new. I'm not planning to drive this car long term, just need it to last a few more years.

    The used arms by themselves wont have bushings and balljoints are removed.
    Bushings need to be replaced when you swap the new arm onto the dogbone.
    $45 ea for the upper arms.
