1993 Cadillac Fleetwood 15,600 mi,
I ought a 1993 Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham used this month, steering had play, found the pitman arm and center link had play, finding a idler arm online is cheap and easy but finding a pitman arm is another story. I can see why compatible pitman arms are hard to find and expensive... They all got worn out and the replacements all got bought up!
The outer treads on my right tire wore out brand new tire in less 2 months
