Just wondering if you got an answer to this problem? One of the control arms (transverse links) on my 1993 Carina E 2.0l GLi Hatchback is making a lot of noise and either needs replacing or rebushing.

I can't find a control arm on the internet at all after hunting for a couple of hours. If you found a source - at a reasonable price - I'd be interested. Alternatively, if you found a way of rebushing the arm can you tell me where?

I've had my Carina for 15 of it's 19 years and this is the first time I've encountered any problem with parts availability.
