My brother needs to change lower control arms in his vehicle. How difficult it's that work? From 1 to 10?
I know original parts supposed to be the best replacement parts, but from the photos that I send here which one you select is the better one? With all of your heart.
Do you
have the same problem?

Hello, I'm Danny.

Beck Arnley is a good choice (photo number 4). Here is a tutorial showing what is involved.I would rate it as a 7 in difficulty:

That style arm isn't bad if you are in an area where they don't rust much. The hardest part is getting the ball joint out of the knuckle. The rest is just unbolt one and bolt the new one on. You will want an alignment after it's done but it should be real close unless the parts are made wrong as the arms are not really adjustable. The last time I did that style arm on a different make it was less than a tenth of a degree off.
