One kit does both the frame side of the idler and the drag/center link end.
Want to rid your Nova of idler arm problems? Replace your worn out bushings with our ball bearing kit!
** Our kit will only fit in the original style idler arm which has the steel case pressed in bushings (Photos Shown of original Idler arm) **
Simply remove the bushings and install our kit.
This kit will NOT work on 62 model idler arms.
62-67 Nova Alignment Specifications
1/4 degrees positive camber both sides
1 to 1 1/2 positive caster, no more than 1/4 degree difference side to side
Set toe to “0” or 1/64 out
It may take 2 hours to get the above spec but you must adhere to it to make it right!
Other Nova Front End Problems
1. Make sure your Nova has the 2 spacer washers on either side of the lower control arm bushing. all original bushings have these. There are generic bushings on the market that are sold without these, make sure they are there!
2.The adjustable eccentrics on the lower control arms like to move a lot. Any slight movement of these and you have lost you front end specs and will start to wear tires etc.
The cure for this is our “Lock Out Kit” PT# 25037
This converts your front end to an upper shim alignment like a late model car.
3. The 63-67 Novas had poor idler arm design. The rubber bushings only last about 6 months. Then your tires start to wear and you need an alignment and so on.
The cure for this is our “Idler Arm Bearing Conversion Kit” PT# 24023
This is a more permanent fix and will last a life time.
UPPER & LOWER CONTROL ARM BUSHINGS
After installation of upper & lower control arm bushings make sure the weight of the car is on the front end before you tighten them down
