FE2 Lower Control Arms
Saturday, August 05, 2017 9:28 AM
So, when I ordered parts for my complete front suspension replacement, it seems that I accidentally ordered the FE2 LCAs:

MOOG RK620466 R-Series; Complete Arm w/ Ball Joint Info
Front Left Lower; FE2 Ride And Handling Suspension

MOOG RK620465 R-Series; Complete Arm w/ Ball Joint Info
Front Right Lower; FE2 Ride And Handling Suspension

Now that everything is torn apart, I can see that these are 0.5 - 1" longer than the ones that were on the car. Obviously, this will affect alignment and I am not sure there will be enough adjustment to correct the camber.

Has anyone done this before or should I just order the right parts and extend this project out:

MOOG RK620271 {#15217436, 15217437} R-Series; Complete Arm w/ Ball Joint Info
Front Left Lower; FE1 Soft Ride Suspension

MOOG RK620272 {Click Info Button for Alternate/OEM Part Numbers} R-Series; Complete Arm w/ Ball Joint Info
Front Right Lower; FE1 Soft Ride Suspension

If they are longer than your car either has the wrong control arms or you got grand am control arms which are longer. Fe1 and fe2 are the same dimensions just different bushings and I believe one has more welds on.

My car has the stock LCAs. I have owned it since it was nearly new.

The replacements that I bought are MOOG RK620466 and MOOG RK620465.

This post confirms what I am saying, although it estimates 3/8":

Is it possible the MOOG parts were manufactured incorrectly?

The alignment specs.are the same for all?

I think it might be a moot issue. I have never seen nor hear of anyone having this issue but one other person who got the wrong control arm.
