Try your local NAPA store. The online site lists NRP 261663 complete
unit for $154. Easy to return if it's not the right part. Rockauto's A1
Cardone 261663 is $122.99, but you'll have to pay shipping on a heavy
unit and wait.

Looks like a complete control arm is what they sell now for about $88
aftermarket, which includes a ball joint. Maybe cheaper than buying
parts and having the bushings pressed in.

It'll be amazing if these loose parts can cause the turning noise
problem on the RH side.

Sure, I wouldn't underestimate the usefulness of these places. The 91
control arm may still work, it's the same generation. But I'm not sure
about the condition of the rubber bushing and the ball joint. But if
it's $5-10 a piece and people want to save money, then it's probably ok
to try.

John:
yea, Ill just get a whole new control arm from NAPA. But I had the
LH front tire replaced, and this fixed the driveablility problem
entirely... no pulling to right, no knock-knock in turns, no
right/left shake in steering wheel. Had the same symptoms on a 85
Mercedes not long ago, and it was a worn out suspension mount...so I
didn't think to check the tires out first. Now I just hear minor
abnormal clunks when car hits bumps or dips in the road. Regards, Jim

Its for a 1988 Toyota Camry I4 wagon, 3SFE engine. It needs new
front lower control arm bushings. I have tried Rock Auto, Autozone,
and O'Reilly, they don't have this.

Good to hear. Yeah, dull rubber like sounds didn't sound like CVs.
