I cant seem to find any info for anything called an "A arm" fot my car online, when I did the searches It came up with tons for control arms for front and rear.

oh, and that picture isnt of anything I own. Its a picture of some random rear end assembly just to show what I need, my axle is just fine, thanks

A Arm or left rear control arm,same thing.

Its been called a Control Arm, A Arm, A Frame, Wishbone, Suspension Arm, and probably a number of cuss words as well.
