Are the new pitman arms exact same ,. Same with the idler arms. Are the bends the same. They should be as far as I know. . Should be the same no matter the make. Anyone know if this is right. I bought a pitman arm but it's for a 72 not a 69 gtx which. I'm looking for.

Just went through this on my 69 Bee. There definitely is variances in the bends of idler arms. I can't remember what brand I had on the car for certain, but think it was from PST. The steering link did not sit parallel to the ground. Seemed to work ok however. Ended up finding some older USA made McQuay-Norris FA605. They are nice with the big metal washers like originals and the steering link sits level.

The Idler Arm is still available by MOOG --- though Chineseum made now ---
That is correct for 1968 - 1972 " B " and " E " body.......

The PITMAN ARM, however , by application for " B " body, is
1962 - 1970 ---- & ---- 1971 - 1972 ---- so, A) they are NOT the same,
B) both are OBSOLETE by MOOG, no one is obtaining them Made by MOOG easily, and C ) I have all of them , in stock , manufactured in the U.S.A.....

P.M. me, as per forum rules, if interested.....,

Craig.....
