Rear lateral link

Noticed my rear passenger tire was toed way in and saw the lateral link was busted. I circled where it is broken below.

What part is broken?

The link itself?
The Mount Point?
The Bolt holding the Link to the Mount?


Is it the Adjustable one or the Non-Adjustable one?

It looks like the link itself is broken. I believe it is the non-adjustable one but I'll check again to make sure. Manual shows the non-adjustable ones bolt to the rear side of the cross member.

That was for the Adjustable one.

Look on RockAuto under Suspension/Control arm. They have several brands from $14 on up. The non-adjustable one is Mopar 4582548 but might be tough to find. The Adjustable one can be used in either position with the bonus of being able to adjust Camber on that wheel besides the Toe.

It is adjustable, I just went out and checked.

Here is the broken side (kinda of blurry but you can clearly see the huge gap in the link):

Other side for reference, you can see it is still connected:

The manual pics are pretty confusing. It shows the adjustable ones on the front, where mine are on the rear. It also says the "right side" links require the cross member to be lowered so the bolt clears the fuel tank. I assume that's the passenger side, which is where my busted one is.

I'll check rockauto again, they must label the parts different.

I only saw the RockAuto ones after doing a search for the Mopar part number.

Again....look under category Suspension/Control Arm. They're in there.

Appears to be an Adjustable Link. Wholesaler closeout. I'd buy 2 of them if you can afford it.

Yes - the parts manuals show the unadjustable one to the rear, but every one I’ve ever seen has the adjustable one on the rear.

And yes - the passenger side has the bolt head towards the fuel tank, so yes - the crossmember needs to be dropped to get that bolt out. I’ve always wondered why they did that. Whenever I have removed that bolt, I always put it back the other way so that if it ever has to come out again, the cross member doesn’t have to be lowered.

lol good to know. Part should be here Thursday according to FedEx.

Going to put some penetrating fluid on the bolts in the meantime. I also wonder if there might be enough clearance to barely get the link off without having to drop the cross member since I'm only removing the rear link. That'd be nice, but won't count on it.

Good look with the flash on:

Since I'm only replacing the rear link, I guess I can remove the nut on the spindle bolt and unbolt from the hub. No need to drop the cross member.

Looks like my stabilizer link is busted too or disconnected at least.

Yep - they do break - happened to one on one of my Concordes. Replacements in aftermarket.
