Are all the O.E. type front lower control arms on a A/G body cars from 1978-1988 the same? Are there any differences from car line to car line?. Do S10 trucks use the same lower control arms? Just being curious here. As far as I know, they're all the same.

All 78-78 lowers are the same I believe 2wd s10 and 3rd gen f-body will work also

Does anyone know FOR SURE if the 3rd gen F bodies (82-91) are the same?
Aftermarket availability is much greater listed for those cars .

I searched via GM p/n for our cars & they only come up for them. F-bodies don't match stock or aftermarket. The aftermaket ones I compaired don't look the same.

F-body lower control arms use different size bushings than the G-body. Check out Speedway Motors - they sell refurbished or aftermarket G-body LCAs for the circle track folks.

My God at $90.00 each and bare to boot, makes tubular look alot more practical. Plus tubular won't be touching my longtube Hooker headers like the stock ones do.
