Need an idea of what type of steel would be used for lower control arm

I'm looking for a close match for what type of steel such as AISI rating, would be used for this nissan z32 lower control arm as pictured.  All I know is the thickness is about 3mm.
Also any links to lower control arm design would be nice.

It could be a high-strength low-alloy steel (HSLA) or maybe a dual phase steel.  Probably with a tensile strength of around 500 MPa.  You can find SAE standards that cover these steels.

but, unless you're stamping a replacement, why would you care? Are you trying to determine strength so you can fab a stronger replacement?
