MOOG 67/69 camaro steering and suspension part numbers

Both sides outer tie rod ES381RL 68-69
Both sides outer tie rod ES348R 67
Both sides inner tie rod ES350S 67-69
Upper ball joint K5108 67-69
Lower ball joint K5103 67-69
Upper control arm Shaft kit K5250
Idler arm + bracket K6099 all 68-69 5.375" long - cast iron, not forged steel.
Idler arm, K6093 all 67 5 3/4" long (no longer available)
Pitman, manual K6150 68-69 (short)
Pitman K6151 PS, short 5.25"
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"
Optional fast ratio PS, uses 5.7" long Pitman arm.

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.
