What Control Arms Do:  Help control the motion of the wheels and connect the suspension to the vehicle structure. 

When a Control Arm Fails: If a control arm comes loose or is bent, it can be dangerous to drive. This can happen after collisions, hitting pot holes or curbs, etc.

Why does my control arm look different on this car? 

Control arms can look very different from vehicle to vehicle. There are also multiple kinds of suspension systems for different types of vehicles and desired handling experiences. Here are the two most common for light-duty vehicles. Notice how the control arm shapes vary, even in different examples of the same system.
