No such thing as front swing arms. Try a search for front control arms.

well i replaced the front Control Arms on my 98.
picked up a set of Q-H from the UK at RockAuto saved 300 bucks, put them on my self and saved a grand at best.
was one of the easyest things i ever did to this car.

They dont make the Q-H ones anymore they went out of business. Buy the european omega MOOG arms instead.

ok let me get this straight, a Opel Omega is the same as a Cadillac Catera?
if so why do they sell lower control arms for a Catera at $114.00 each and
Omega at $46.00 each, how would you know if they are the same part?

thank You

the catera is an opel omega B made in Germany by GM they changed the driver to the left side and added a bunch of goo to make it look nice like a Cadillac they shipped all the parts to Michigan were it was assembled and sold.

some parts are just the same I know I buy omega parts all the time, reason why the others are so expensive is one word Cadillac ..
