    Just an FYI in case you haven't seen these - you can get Dodge van complete LCAs made by Raybestos Chassis through Amazon.

    (Raybestos part #s 507-1159 & 507-1160 for left and right, respectively.)

    At around $102 per arm with bushings and balljoint already installed, they're not exactly cheap and they still have to be modified to fit. But they're another option to junkyard parts if you're looking to lower the front end.

    Thanks Dozer!
    I meant to put that info in when I started this thread!

    You can order two lefts or two rights, it doesn't matter because once you cut the stops off them they're identical

    Rock Auto carries them also
