My left lower A arm broke last night as I was leaving a parking lot-thankfully not on the freeway. The SAS catalog has a piece about this but I wasn't a believer until last night. I pulled 3 at the wreaking yard this afternoon-2 were cracked in exactly the same way. It's clear they need to be checked on a regular basis. They crack on the rear leg across the channel near the pivot tube, on the long way of the channel leaving the small web to carry the load-it won't. My right is OK but I'll be checking it a lot-once bitten twice shy. Phil Brown
