Question G2 Upper Control Arms?

Has anyone been able to find serviceable arms for the front? I need to replace mines and understand that MOOG has a R & K series. The K series is supposed to be the higher end version with a Zerk grease fitting. Of all of the photos that I have seen online, I have not seen any with fittings for our cars, even though they are K series (K9927 & K9928). Anyone have good stories with arms outside of OEM & MOOG?

Last summer I replaced both of the upper control arms with two-(2) from Meyle. No complaints at all. The mechanic, a Honda/Acura trained one, said the parts were good quality. Hope this helps.

I'm not familiar with that brand. Where did you buy them from, do they have fittings on the ball joints?

Rock Auto has a comprehensive selection of parts, makers, and prices for a plethora of vehicles. Now, their shipping charges need to be factored in. The prices for the OEM/Honda Genuine UppCtrlArms were expensive "ad extremum", definitely not a suitable option for an old vehicle.

I procured mines from Pelham Autoparts. They do free shipping, good prices, quality, and amicable service. Other purchases from them have been several engine mounts, stabilizer bar bushings, end links, gasket sets, and so on. Yes, the rubbers in our cars is already reaching the end or their lifespan.

As for the Meyle quality, my mechanic was very pleased with the Control Arms and so far I am happy with the results. You can also look at the Meyle website, they list many of their items there. But, Meyle is not the only "non-OEM labeled" option available for our suspension parts. Also, Doorman, Moog, Mevotech, and Raybestos have on-line catalogs where you can check some of their items.

I appreciate the advice. I thing I'm leaning towards the MOOG Problem Solvers. The price is less than $200 shipped to me.
