    Mike:

    Used lower control arms for these vehicles are pretty common as they were also used in other GM vehicles. Look on eBay for starters -- I bought a set about two months ago from the Cadillac King website. I would expect to pay about $75-$100 each.

    There is a washer and bushing on each side of the frame - it all gets sandwiched together when you tighten the nut on the control arm. The bushings and washers are sold as a set and are called the strut rod bushings.

    That aforementioned nut was a lock nut from the factory. If you don't replace it, at least put some threadlocker on it.
