Unhappy w123 rear control arm: interchangable between wagon and sedan?

Hi folks,

Have to change the rear control arm on my '80 wagon. Have an '82 sedan parts car almost ready to go to the boneyard.

I know the answer is probably no, but I figured I'd ask....

Thanks in advance

yes, yes yes. they are the same part.
as a matter of fact, they are on the unobtainum parts list for the 123 vehicles.
so pull both from your parts car before you crush it! I'm storing a few sets in my garage loft before I crush the frames of all my parts cars. (thanks for the tip ROY)

wow

Man am I ever glad I asked.

My luck with interchange over the years has been soooo bad, I almost didn't bother with the post. Sheesh.

A million thanks and yeah, I'm gonna get both pulled for sure

I believe the first generation W126, 81 to 85 will work also.

I think the price for a new one was $1200.00.

They can apparently still be had....

In Canada new for approx. $1100. That was a quote from an independent parts dealer. They also list one at $400 used.

Which is why I asked in the first place (major drop-receiver-fall-off-chair syndrome)

I am really appreciating the help on this forum.

I pulled a set off an 85 300CD this summer for an R&R on my 85 300D. think the price with the hub was $42.00 each.
