They're called A-arms, I'd go to a different mechanic vs one that doesn't know the difference...

On most other cars they are called control arms. But yea when talking about SA mustangs, control arms are rear, and a arms are front.

I just bought some Motorcraft "A arms" from Rockauto. Only, if I recall, they called them front control arms. Whatever. They're the two big metal thingamajigglyjobbers underneath the front of the car. I think they were $125.each complete, bushings and balljoints. Not a bad deal. Rockauto RULES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
