NB vs NA lower control arms.

Any difference besides sway bar mounting point? And can I use my NA sway links with the single shear NB mounting point?

Nbs are like a ball joint thing right? Do you have spherical end links? Or rubber? I would not recommend the rubber in single shear.

Yes. I have the rubber. Ugh, did not want to add another thing to the list.

FM sells the weld-on tabs for cheap enough: Lower Control Arm Reinforcement Flanges for 99-05 - Racing Beat

Not sure if the NA stock end links will work with them.

Weld tabs

The above is just an example. Or hell, get some hex stock + buy the end links and make up a set yourself

Rod ends

When I did the NA->NB subframe swap I swapped front UCAs and kept the LCAs, they're the same from what I recall except that endlink tab PITA. That's why I didn't bother swapping them :P

These are steel
Scotchbrite is useless. I tried. Sandpaper would have helped.

They are getting sand blasted and powder coated.
