Dogleg arms?

Been told both rear "dogleg" arms need replacing? Is the proper part name bottom wishbones?
Done a forum search but nothing to say or show me?

Rear transverse arms is the correct term, I think

They look like dog's legs, which is where the name comes from. As swallow says, transverse arms is the proper name for them. They attach the rear hub carrier to the rear subframe, and also mount the lower part of the shock absorber:

Some photos here so you can see what they look like:

If you need a set like in the advert, let me know.
