Default Dorman control arms

Couple quick questions. Anyone ever used the dorman control arms? Are they any good compared to others? Also anyone have the part number for energy suspension sway bar links. Finally what are you guys using for rear air shocks? The monroes ive heard descent things about so thinking of going with those. Sorry for all the questions but im on my phone posting this as my internet decided to crash on me. And the search function on here is killing my phone.

Thanks in advance guys

I have them on my Regal and was happy at the price. They are a complete with balljoint unit that'* ready to bolt in. I figured they cost of them was worthwhile over trying to press in bushings etc.

Good deal thanks Bill. Here is the link for the control arms nighthawk.

Around 78 bucks isn't bad considering other prices I've seen for control arms.
