    confused Different Rear Control Arms?

    I ordered a pair of control arms from ebay for 30quid, but one has squaired corners running the length of the arm (like on sellers pics) and other one has rounded corners
    Is this gonna cause any problems or should it be ok?
    Cheers Bill

    Edit: ive also just noticed that one of the bushes in the dodgy-looking-rounded-corners arm seem very loose as in can be swiveled easily by hand but the others wont budge??

    Might just be from different manufacturers. Do the holes of the bushes line up when they're placed ontop of each other.

    The bushes shouldn't be easilly moveable by hand - that's how they get when they need replacing.

    Replacement arm recieved, and with the squared edges. The seller was helpful and posted it out once he recieved the funky one but it got delayed due to the snow.
    Not looking forward to fitting them, especialy in this weather. My mate said he can borrow some tools from a garage but sadly not the garage itself. Only thing I can think of that i'll need to borrow is more extension bars to get in from the back. Any other suggestions?
