Just checked the crosshaft kits I bought for my upper A-Arms (75 camaro) and the bushings are all the same size, and sit loosely in one of the mounting holes. Obviously not right. I'm hating the idea of buying MORE new bushings, but is there anything else to do? Nope....

Moral: Check stuff before you buy if possible... At least I only need 2 bushings to fix it. Sigh....

My Moog catalog says there is a different kit for 67-69, 70-73, 74-79, 80-81.
Maybe you have a kit for the wrong year?

For your Camaro use Moog #6144 bushing kit, 1 kit does one upper A frame.

I'll try to get a replacement or if not, my money back for them and buy that part... Thanks.

Looks like they could have gotten the year wrong when looking up the parts, or else your suspension is different for some reason.
Good luck, David

If its the wrong year, then it's wrong in their parts omputer. I was leaning over and watched him select the correct year, and it was the part listed there. I doubt my suspension is different, I've just begun my car hobby and as far as I know it had never been replaced.
