Continental control arms again. Logic doesn't work. Am I simple?

2009 Drivers side lower front control arm.... Mine is stamped 4E0407695. So I go on ebay, there's 30 of them. All used. So in their part descriptions, they give a fitment list.

"Genuine Audi 07-10 D3 S8 5.2L Front R Rearward Lower Control 4E0407696 R6"

So because I want new, I go to Rockauto.com with the same fitment list.

I put in the same range.... audi blah blah blah. Pull up the list.....and guess what. Different numbers .

Over and over. Different descriptions , still can't find that part.

Somebody just give me a list of what to buy before I go crazy

Hi Philberticus,
log on to Flying Spares and they have all the suspension and steering arms listed. Great company to deal with by the way.
Hope that helps.

Not sure if all parts are identical to Audi Phaeton but I wouldn't be surprised. Flying Spares also list non OEM parts as replacements which, by looking briefly, seem to be about half Bentley prices. Give them a call, have a chat. The guys there know their stuff and always very helpful. I have no affiliation to the company but, as I said earlier, they are first rate.
