New lower A-arm?

The joint where the lower control arm connects to the brake assem. broke, and it seems as though theres some sorta bracket at the bottom of the A arm which is also cracked, so do i needa new a arm with the bracket alredy on it or can i just buy the bracket and joint and just bolt it right on to the a arm? its too cold outside so im askin here instead of goin out and seeing myself. thanks fellas

Long time ago there was a recall or service bullitin on that problem.Maybe a call to a friendly GM service manager would help get the info.

If you mean the ball joint is broken then yes you can replace just that but if an actual structual part of the a-arm is broken you need a new arm.
