68 Lower Ball Joints
« on: April 29, 2008, 05:14:48 PM »
Can someone tell me if these lower ball joints have the correct appearance for a 68 Camaro?  I think this is a second design as I think my originals had a flat flange that was the stop against the bottom of the control arm.  If these are not correct can someone post a pic of what the originals looked like?  Hate asking but I tossed my originals (like an ass) when I replaced them the first time with common Moog parts.  Also any info on how the "exact" repops really compare in appearance to what the car came with would be appreciated. 
Thanks Guys!

No one has a picture of an original from-the-factory ball joint or originals still on their car???

Philip,

If the picture is small enough you can reply to the message, click on the preview button, then additional options. There is a place ther to attach a file. If the picture 1s not more than 128 kb you can post it directly. If it is larger, there is software you can use to reduce the size, and then post it.
