Maybe? Of course, you are! Legendary in these parts... (pun intended)

Actually, it's more amazing that you are working with Americans, and not some off-shore technical support person. Federal Mogul is doing some things right, anyway.

This is a worthy mission.

I had to get GM parts for the LCA, because Summit and Autozone both had the wrong ones. I chewed up some tires while it shuddered and shook for a week or so, too...

This is my reply:

Thank you for that.
There seems to be many inaccuracies in the part numbers for HHR and especially HHR SS.
Do they still publish a book of specific measurements for parts like ball joints? If so, how could I get one.
The only ball joint listed for the HHR SS in any parts book that I have access to is incorrect, I have difficulty believing that no one makes the part.

While you are at changing part numbers be advised that almost all of the parts books list K80252; this is incorrect it is 12 inches long and does not fit correctly. The correct part is K750012, the 10 inch part.

Thank you,
Don

I take that back. All SS cobalts, SC and TC, apparently had the aluminum alloy LCAs. I don't know what the deal is with these.

There may be no difference between steel and cast aluminum. I don't know!
