Idler arm 3917581 is correct for 68 Camaro.
Pitman arm is dependant on manual/power steering options. 3935075 is correct for manual steering.

I have seen the C-shaped pitman arms used on 1st-gen Firebirds. No idea why they went with that design but that is probably what that is.

This is what the early Firebird pitman arm looks like. I assume it was curved to clear the Pontiac V8 exhaust manifold although I have heard a straight pitman arm will also work and is what is typically sold to Firebird owners as the replacement part.
