My Sedona mk2 56 plate needs rear upper control arms. These are the thick metal curved arms that link from the frame to the back of the wheel assembly. Can these be refurbished or new ones where is cheapest?

The mode of failure on my Mk1 2006 Sedona was the arms corroded badly with laminated layers of rust, when I had removed them and got down to clean metal by taking off at least 2kg of rust scales they had lost well over half the original thickness, also you cannot get into the areas around the rubber mounts. Home refurbed arms would fail mot as you are not allowed to weld them, it could be done and you could make them look like new but its not worth the effort, you can get new ones from £80 to £100 price range, I recall seeing someone in Latvia offering them for around £80 and there is a Canadian company still making them.
