O.K. guys I have searched the archives and I can't find any post on what I need to know so here it goes.
What pittman arm, idler arm and drag link do I need on a 72 model chevelle clip with pinto spindles. Cutting a drag link isn't a problem for me either if that's what it takes.

Use '68-'72 Chevelle parts. Go to www.dirtworksracecars.com , look in their catalog for the right pieces for your particular clip. Give 'em a call and talk to Andy, he's very helpful.

ditto.

The only thing that will change will be the pitman arm if you are running a metric box. A manual steer pitman arm is used with the metric box. Otherwise its all stock chevelle stuff. You will have to make a spacer for the steering arm to set you bumpsteer.

Thanks guys, I checked the dirtwoks site and crossed all of the Moog part numbers and they are in fact all stock parts. The only problem is I am having a little trouble finding a pittman arm. I plan on using a cup car take off box, I hope that won't create more problems.

We run ES323L for inner tie rod it's off an ealier corvette I think it's shorter so we can run longer swedge tube, southwest speed carries pitman arms might give them a try.

by cup car take off box do you mean a nascar box if so i have only seen one and it didnt work for dirt it turned easy to the left but was super hard to turn to the right i guess to keep the cup guys from over correcting to the right.
