ok i crashed the car into a curb and i need to replace the upper and lower control arms front and rear left side. also tie rods and cradel for motor. also swaybar and tie rods.. my question is as i look on ebay and stuff, are the cts control arms the same as cts-v? also with other parts. just a genreal question for all suspension so i know that i can buy one from a cts model and fit it on the ctsv model. id like some input on this as im in bit of rish to get parts to the shop. the shop wants charge way to much for parts when i can find them cheaper through here or ebay or elsewhere. thanks

See attached, for some of your questions.

I use the GMPartsDirect data base as well as the Rock Auto lookup to identify parts and differences.

Based on the PDF provided: (1) the front UPPER control arms are the same for both the CTS and the CTS-V because they have the same part number; (2) the front LOWER control arms are NOT the same for the CTS and the CTS-V because they each have their own part number; and (3) the REAR UPPER & LOWER control arms are the same for the CTS and the CTS-V because they have the same part number.

Before I spent a lot of money on any non-returnable parts, I would cross check this either with a GM parts vendor or one of the GM Parts data bases online. On the GMPartsDirect data base http://www.gmpartsdirect.com/catalog/?CFID=11865479&CFTOKEN=48422024, if you go through the parts ordering process all the way to checkout, but not actually checking out, it will even give you a part number.
