Need a new lower ball joint (whole lower control arm), and was wondering what brands are alright..
Lemforder is 150...
or I can get Beck/Arnley or Delphi for half that...
I've used them both of them for other things, but never control arms..
Thoughts?
Planning on replacing the struts at the same time (planning on getting Sachs, I like the stock ride)..

Well that's great if it fit C70s...
Says it only fits P80 S70 and V70...
Should be the same. C70s get different steering stops but you can add or swap those.

All I can say is don't get the Meyle HD ones. Mine tore the rubber out in under 20k miles. Suddenly my steering had like 15 degrees of play in it between being on and off the gas. Popped each ball joint loose and the arms fell right to the ground. FCP honored their lifetime warranty and even let me exchange for OEM arms (plus cost difference).

I used Blue Box
Same here. Blue box. It came with mounting hardware too, which was a nice touch considering the old hardware was rusted to hell. I think for the C70, lemforder is oem for the 4 bolt version.
