The part number for the standard control arm supersedes to the "tii" part which has sort of an extra "flange" (I beam) construction. If you order the plain old part - it'll be the tough one. If you still have the scrawny ones - say goodbye to them! CHEAp too ($45-50)Do yourself a big favor and replace the ball joints too. Watch out for those trick "safety wire bolts" on the bottom of the struts -regular bolts will shear and make life very very interesting at speed(!)
The safety bolts ain't cheap (5-6 bucks EACH!) but REPLACE THEM if you're in doubt as to their age. I have ruined entire weekends on these fasteners!
