Yes, you have the short arms you need for power steering.
Here is a list of parts used on Camaro steering I copied from my web page.
David

OUTER ARMS

I have read that Corvair outer steering arms will fit camaro and are most likely the short type. (unconfirmed)

SHORT 5.25" LH-3954875 RH-3954876 Used on power steer, and Z/28 fast ratio manual.

SHORT LH-3902519 RH-3902520 turn stop pad is more pronounced on top, arm appears a bit thinner than later arms. 1968

SHORT LH-3954879 RH-3954880 (listed in parts book as 5.312" long, this may be the actual correct length for all short arms)

SHORT JL8 four wheel disc arms, 1969 Z/28 Heat Treated, Shot Peened, (probably short) LH 3916237, RH-3916238

MEDIUM ARM? I have a number for one right hand arm 5.5" length RH-3916266 The left arm is usually one number lower -3916265? not sure what ratio. Most likley used on
standard ratio power steering.

LONG 6" manual, - LH-3902517 RH-3902518 (67, early long measured at 6") LH-3917193 RH-3917194 slow ratio manual steering.

PITMAN ARMS

MANUAL LONG 5.8", 3953225 (5671822 this number was given to me but not shure of it, does not start with 39xxxxx)

MANUAL SHORT 5.25", 3953217 (on part 3953219)

POWER LONG 5.8", 3953237 (3953227 on part late, - 3908391 1967 early-thinner)

POWER SHORT 5.25", 3935711-late -3935075 3953231-327 eng -early?

CENTER LINK

large OD PS center link - 3953221

STEERING BOX- MANUAL

all manual case casting numbers are 5679142 regardless of ratio for Camaro.

manual steering gear assembly Z/28 "special fast" 20 to 1 ratio fits 67 to 81 Camaro. 7806396

manual steering gear assembly 16 to 1 ratio Monza and Vega 7819935 might fit Camaro. Listed in "Chevrolet Power" parts book.

PS PULLEYS 67-68

3744043 crank - double groove, low perf V8

3751232 crank - PS drive insert single, low perf V8

3890419 water pump double groove, low perf V8

3770509 PS pump low perf V8

3858533 crank - double deep groove, Z/28 and HP

3765947 crank - double deep groove, PS drive insert Z/28 and HP

David -

The long/manual pitman arm I took off my '69Z when I converted it to P/S has forging #3953227 on it; don't know what the finished GM number is for it.
