My friend's 1994 C220 Right Lower Control Arm - Thankfully, was backing out of driveway, car dropped to the ground on the right side! Rust shows that more than half of area (where ball joint knuckle is welded to the arm) was already separated, and final 40% or less broke that day. Just drove 3 hours that day on the freeway! Rolling 0 MPH - can you imagine what would have happened at 70+ MPH?
Inspected the left lower control arm, did not see any rust damage. Must have been a defective paint job on the one that broke. 1994 car, breaks in August 2018! We ordered a LLT warranty control arm from Advance Auto Parts, and are planning to replace it Friday. Have already pulled the old one off. Can send more pictures if anyone is interested. Car has less than 150,000 miles on it.
