Hey guys I noticed my car was out of alignment. When I took it to the shop they told me it was a broken lower control arm on the rear passenger side.
I'm thinking that if that side has rust damage it would be better to replace the driver side as well.
However I'm having problems finding the right part. Is it possible it goes by another name or something?

It's Wisconsin, those bolts are going to be seized. You'll likely ruin the spindle carrier bushings getting the bolts out and ruin the bolts, get new bolts and a set of poly bushings and expect a fight.

Toyota refers to it as a lower control arm, and it's roughly C shapedTraditionally a trailing arm is a more or less straight link back to an axle or spindle carrier with in a multi link or solid rear axle configuration.

So we're both wrong, they don't call it a trailing arm and they don't call it a lower control arm.
