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!
