Still trying to find new front control arms....
All the parts places I've checked out had the LCA's for a 93 listed as pn: M-3075A. I've found one pair on ebay, listed as M-3075D, which the seller says is for a SN95. Are there any differences between the two? Could I bolt in the "D" model instead of waiting till October for the back orders to be filled?

I would think you can because the springs, struts, and spring isolators are interchangable. The only part that is really different is the spindle.

What's wrong with your current arms?

Well, the ball joints are pretty much lacking all their rubber collars, I have a hideious front end squeak, and the front end vibrates at speed, which has feathered the new tires on it to the point that I'll probibly have to replace em shortly. :sosad:
At this point, I may have to just buy another set of used, and have the bushings/ball joints replaced, but I'd just rather save myself the trouble, and replace the whole shindig.
Theres a little more detail here .

You absolutely need the M-3075-A's. The newer SN95s will NOT work as they are longer than the Fox ones and the Balljoint is shorter. I had to hunt for them for quite some time, but I found a set in Arizona.

Thats what I was afraid of, but maybe I should just put the project off for a while, I have a feeling I may need the money to pay for gas (up 60 cents in 24 hours and going up again today:()

Why not just buy new bushings and ball joints? 100 bucks max in cost.
The main reason was that its our only car, and the g/f has to be able to get to work next week :sosad: If I had known they were backordered, I would have just gone to the scrapyard, and gotten some used, then had that done, but at this point, I don't have the springs ordered, and wont really have the time to wait for them, and get all the other ducks lined up.
I guess I'll just keep saving, and maybe do it as a 3 day weekend sometime around halloween

Thanks for all the ideas/feedback though.
