Question Upper control arms.

Hello Members,

Is there a difference in the design of the left and right upper control arms. I just received two core (for a rebuild) and they are both identical. Thank you.

Sincerely,

Patrick

You're welcome Patrick. They should be marked R or L or have a part number stamped on them.

Hello John,

Do you know where the stamping mark would be located on the upper arms? I look everywhere without any luck.

I thought there was a RH or LH stamped somewhere on them but I could be hallucinating again. If you don't see it then I'm probably thinking of a different car.

He has a '64 Tbird. The part numbers are
C3SZ-3082-B (R) and C3SZ-3083-A (L). The same upper arms are used from '63-'66.

Yes, I googled those arms (B8S 3082-A - RH & B8S 3083-A - LH) and those are totally different arms to what's in my brothers 64 Thunderbird.
