I recently was overviewing my car and noticed the rear knuckles are aluminum and look in great condition which brings me the question.. Are these stock for the '92? My '95 SC looks (not 100% without taking the wheel off) to have cast knuckles not aluminum because they are rusted. The ones on the '92 look like they were installed recently due to pristine condition.

If you're talking about swapped in parts, I think you mean the lower control arms - Test with a magnet. Lincoln Mark VIIIs had aluminum arms and someone may have swapped them in to save weight.

My lower arms are stock.. waiting for some cash to do anything with the rear.
