Pitman, PS K6154, 67-69 5.78" long (probably 5 3/4") 32 splines 1.1-1.18 diam. Not longer available from Moog.
Pitman, PS , long, Moog# 6582 New production run, no grease fitting - Currently available at any auto parts store that sells Moog parts. These appear to be less durable than grease fitting type, have plastic injected around the stud.

Pitman, PS long, TRW # 18770 Same as above. Probably a Moog part in a TRW box.
NOTE: There are two length pitman arms for power and two lengths for manual. Std 17 to 1 ratio power steering uses 5.25"

I should add, the Moog idler is slightly shorter than the long 5.75" Camaro pitman arm. If you use the long Pitman on your steering box, the 5.375" Moog replacement will probably work OK, but the "best" match in length is the 67 idler arm, which is only available from Ricks, Classic Industries, and some others.

If you are using the short Pitman the Moog replacement is a good match.

Your old one can be rebuilt by "Rare Parts" in Stockton California, they make the reproduction idlers for the Camaro vendors. http://www.rareparts.com/
They only sell to people with resale license, like speed shops.
