lots of shims on driver side upper control arm
Hey guys, I'm getting ready to rebuild the front suspension on my 68 base Camaro. I was planning on replacing all bushings, tie rods, center link, ball joints, etc, but was NOT planning to replace my control arms. I was looking at the driver side upper control arm and there are a lot of shims on the forward end (compared the rear of the same control arm and either side of the passenger side upper arm). My fear is that this is a sign of trouble.
My question is, would you guys (with much more experience than me) think that the rebuild would help remedy the need for all of those shims or is it more likely that there is a control arm issue?
I'd like to just do this once, but I don't want to spend money on parts I don't need. At this point, I am tempted to stick with my original plan and see how the alignment goes afterward, and if I can't get it straightened out, look at replacing the control arm.
