Jim: If I'm not mistaken, I recall an old CAT shop note that listed a
Chevy Nova idler arm bushing as a direct replacement for the TIg/Alp
lower A arm bushes. If this is still true, there are several companies,
such as Energy Suspensions, making Delrin suspension for lots of Detroit
iron. A few phone calls should confirm this. I sold my old first edition
CAT shop notes....anybody got a copy so that they look up and
confirm/deny my fuzzy memories?
