This is why you should always own more than one vehicle. I have 3 actually. Always need a backup.

So you need stabilizer links? You can get that junk at Autozone type places for $10. Why do you need UCA's anyway?

I dunno, my mechanic he told me the specific broken one I got nopw is an RCD one and some of his normal ones the bushings wont fit cause my control arm is aftermarket one.

i know!!! Thats why its confusing as hell. I wish I had a ride down to the shop so I could see wtf is actually needing to be replaced. Thgem telling me over the phone really doesnt help me at all.

The way he explained it to me was the stabilizer link, 13 inch rod that has bushings and holes thru it will join mmy stab. bar to my control arm. I know that sounds like jibrish but thats what he told me over the phone. I asked for a bvetter description and he told me its a specific part that says RCD on it. It helps control the steering so there isnt as much sway. I asked about a steering stabilizer and I guess I was wrong.
