want to buy lower control arms and shocks

I am looking to buy front lower control arms and 4 shocks. The shocks I want to be aftermarket, the control arms can be factory or aftermarket.

I have an '07 with 120k on it. The shocks that I have are OME with 100k, the lower control arms are original. While I can't detect any play in them I would like to replace them when I have the front end apart.

I will entertain any ideas, but if not then I will go with Moog and Bilstein. I have replaced the upper control arms already. I am thinking of paying about 1/2 the cost of new parts. If you have stuff taking up space in your garage....

Re: want to buy lower control arms and shocks

Why don't you get a used pair of lower control arms and get them rebuilt using new bushings and ball joints.
When your done rebuilding them then you can swap them in when you install the new shocks.
Just my 2 cents. BTW I do have a set of used lower control arms in my garage that I just can't throw them out!
