Author Topic:   Metric Steering Rebuild?
posted February 09, 2004 04:56 PM
I hit the wall and bent some things up. So I plan on rebuilding the complete steering system. I'm talking the Drag link, idler arm, inner and outer tie rods. But going thru the Speedway and Midwest catalogs, I don't notice anything but stock items.
What does everyone use? Just some good Moog stock parts, or is there anything that I'm missing for that little extra.

I already have the ball joints, I plan on installing steel a-arm bushing. And i will be moving the left top a arm mount this spring for better camber.

Just searching for idea's hear, but could i install the 6" Camaro idler arm and pitman arm, would this help the bump steer.

Thanks for the responses, that's kind of what I was leaning towards, why reinvent the wheel here.
The stock parts should be just fine.

Tried the after market tall ball joints and within 4 or 5 races they were all bent. Maybe it was just my luck, put 20 year old stock parts back on or replaced with part store cheapies and had no problems after that.
