Idler Arm 69 Z
« on: July 16, 2018, 01:24:42 PM »
If I need to replace my original idler arm, what should I be using? Seen a lot of discussion about replacement parts that are close but not the same. Or, can an original be re-built?

Wondering the same thing Jimmy. Looked at the Moog replacement, but the difference in length put the drag link out of parallel with the centreline of the front wheels at straight ahead, which I was hoping to avoid....

Yes, I've seen a lot of discussion about this in the past. Was hoping for a straight forward solution but.......?
