Anyone know the original part number to a 1966 brick Riviera pitman arm. Mine is straight no bend 7"and has this number 5697250-1340 is it correct?
Just left from talking to the mechanic he showed me where the centerlink on the pitman's arm had a lot play in it. Is there anyway to replace that grommet in the centerlink?Send us a pic of the rag joint & we can usually tell IF it's bad by looking. I have the PROPER Rag Joints in stock.
I have all ready had the front suspension kit installed 10 years ago but I don't think they greased the upper and lower ball joints. Just had those replaced yesterday and also the idler arm but the center link no and how much for a rag joint complete not the kit?Terry,
YES it needs a rag joint pretty badly. The center link has to be sent out to get rebuilt. I here that Auto Zone/Advanced Auto can get one that's rebuilt already. Of course you have to either give it to them now or when you pick it up. Check it out. I know that at one time Rare Parts was rebuilding them, & still do, BUT back then it was around the $600.00 range. I'm pretty sure the pricing has come down since then.
How about the strut rod/brake reaction rod bushings???
How about the rear track bar/panhard rod bushings in the rear. You wouldn't think they would cause an unstable car, BUT believe me they do.
I have ALL this stuff in Poly if you need it.
Oil change, filter yes, greased suspension no. I don't drive it like that. I basically just start it up and let it run for a while.I don't believe the rag joints come as complete units, BUT you could do a goggle search to find out. In 10 years you haven't had the oil, filter changed or a grease job???
