I need a new Pitman arm and Idler arm for my 69 and Chevy no longer has it. I tried Classic Industries, Modern Chevy in N.C., and Year one. They all make after market ones.
I tried also Performance Suspension Technology and they also sell them but much more expensive.
Example, the Pitman arm in the above places were $59.00 and PST wanted $105.00. So, which of the above if any, is the best place to buy the arms ?
Thanks

You can get the idler arm from AutoZone.... $34. They have the pitman arm depending on power or manual steering from Rare Parts for $72 to $86.

Got my pitman arm from Advanced Auto Parts for $62. Look alright to me and for as often as I drive my camaro I am sure it will be fine.
