    1993 SDV left rear lower A frame gives out !

    So i`m driving home and i take a slow right hand turn on a side street about 3/4 of a mile from my house. BOOM...The coil spring falls out through a rotted lower A frame...Never had that happen, never seen that happen, never heard of that ever happening to anyone!..and on a 78k mile car..... So where is the best place to look for a left rear lower A frame for 93 SDV ?

    I wonder how many '93s are left in the "mens malls".

    Haha There's actually lot at the yard I frequent. Packed with 80s and 90s domestic & foreign. Hard to find anything after 2000. Also have a huge old cars section 50s 60s 70s. Since the recession I've watched the old car section double then triple in size now they don't even have aisles anymore they're just shoving them in on top of each other. Last time I was there I spotted a 63 fleetwood limo with fold down footrests.
    There's a harry's u pull it nearby too, but that's all late model stuff. There's others with older stuff if you search.

    I love junkyards.

    Stop it! You're giving me the shakes. I haven't had a junkyard fix in months.

    There's a junkyard in Laramie that has a 93. Almost bought the driver's seat for a office chair of sorts.

    Back on the road! Actually , Easily found a control arm....and it looked like it came off a car not in the rust belt. So i have a surface rusty right control arm and black coated control arm out back on the left. Was a moderately tough job.
