Sounds like you have Pinto spindles. Does your car also have older Nova lower control arms?

The spindals are or what i thought they was was the med size metric spindals the lower controls arms are the chevelle 68 to 72 as the same as the front clip i did not have any problems with the front end stuff on my old car it has the same frontend as my new dw i am also running the chevelle drag link pitiman arm idler arm and another thing that is happening is i have 1 1/2 neg camber on the right front and in 3inches of bump it goes to 5 1/2 neg is this right or wrong as you can problably tell i don't know much about frontends it has all the longer balljoints i just don't know what i need to do
