My son went in the ditch with his 1994 tracer wagon and was pulled out buy a logging skidder. The rear right control arm was damaged. Where can I buy these and how hard are they to put on. It looks like it also adjusts for alignment of rear wheels to front?

if you go to autozone''s website (www.autozone.com) and check out the repair guide, you''ll find your answer with pictures. for the 94 though, it''s not a control arm, it''s trailing links or lateral links (depending on if they are connected forward or sideways respectively). The biggest problem is making sure the strut is static (you may need spring compressors or spring clamps) while you work on the links.

Thanks, that web site looks wonderful. What I have is a broken rear right lateral link that will need replacing. I assume I can get one on the same website. thanks again.

always shop around.

I live in a major metroplex so I have lots of places to go and actually get it. if you don''t live in a major area and have to order on-line, check google shopping as well as the usual suspects (autozone.com, oreillyauto.com, napaonline.com, rockauto.com, etc).

also check and see if you can get lifetime warranty parts so you don''t have to worry about them again. granted, they won''t warranty something like what happened to you, but still.
