what is this part - connects spindle to tie rod

I am rebuilding the front suspension/brakes/etc and need to locate the part that connects the spindle to the tie rod. In the assembly manual it is referred to just as "spindle arm". Do you have a part number??

Thanks,
Ross

Sounds like you're referring to a steering arm. Scroll down about 2/3s of the way on this page from David Pozzi's excellent site: http://www.pozziracing.com/camaro_st...eering_linkage

thats exactly what i needed Mike.

Any idea on where i can find these? I've checked out all the parts stores online I know of and none of them have these parts.

I'd keep an eye on Ebay, and post wanted ads on Camaros.net and Pro-touring.com.

What side do you need? I have one extra you can have for shipping. I will have to check on the side.

Re: what is this part - connects spindle to tie rod

I need both sides actually. Im looking for one of the shorter ones. From the above website:
LH-3954875 RH-3954876 Used on power steer, and Z/28 fast ratio manual.

Are these the ones I want for the third gen steering box I have? Theres a set on ebay right now for both and they look like the right ones. If I don't win that auction, I will take you up on your offer!

Thanks,
Ross

The one I have is a long arm. It will work with any power box. The difference with an increase in the lock to lock turns. The short ones will be better for you. I hope you win.

Be careful here b/c guys have posted that a car with a super quick box with short arms can get twitchy at speed!!

I would try the quick box with what you have first and then if it isn't fast enough for you, then hunt up a pair of short arms.

Just my 2 cents here is all..

Re: what is this part - connects spindle to tie rod

I agree with that. That is why I wanted the longer arms. Some how my car had one long and one short arm. That is how I ended up with only one extra long arm.
