What's in the Box

Info

This upper control arm for 1970-1981 Camaro is designed to be used with the stock mount. Available in 8", 8-1/4", 8-1/2", 8-3/4", 9", 9-1/4", 9-1/2". This control arm requires the use of a K6024-style ball joint, which is equivalent a 1963-’71 Chevy pickup style upper ball joint. It will have a 7 degree tapered stud and therefore, the stock Camaro spindle must be reamed to fit the pickup ball joint.

Cross shaft mount bolts center on center. Measures 7-3/4". The arms are symmetrical.

Note: This control arm does not use a stock Camaro ball joint, (all) of the ball joints that we offer require reaming stock spindle.

Note: Our "length" reference refers to the distance from the center of the ball joint to the centerline of the cross shaft. The "stock" length of a Camaro upper A-arm is 9-1/4".

Could be stronger

July 18, 2016
These are nice for tuning in camber, eliminated all my shims. I just wish they were built heavier for street stock racing. I've bent a few up with only light contact with other cars that the stock one never would have bent.
Pros:
  • Camber Tuning
  • Stock Mounting
Cons:
  • Bends Easy When Hit
Yes, I recommend this product.

Awesome Control Arm Saves A Lot Of Weight

April 17, 2016
Let's face it, the lighter the car, the faster it goes. The 910-34397 Tubular Upper Control Arm is a huge Bang For The Buck, the price is great, and they will save you 4 Pounds per side over Stock Upper Control Arms. They are available in 7 different lengths, for Various Front Suspension needs. They are for Race Applications, and do use a Heavy Duty, Larger Ball Joint, so if you're using Factory Stock Spindles, you will need to have them reamed to the proper taper.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Good, but not perfect

February 14, 2016
These are a great option for my dirt street stock. Allows me to tune in the camber how I want. My only complaint after going through a few of these, is that the tubing is not strong enough. The bend a little too easy for my liking.
Pros:
  • Perfect Fit
Yes, I recommend this product.

great effective and affordable product

September 30, 2015
Bought this A-arm to run on my '79 camaro dirt street stock race car. It's a great replacement to the oem a-arm and gives you the ability to create camber without a bunch of shims and leaves room for the headers to be mounted without taking the a-arm bolts loose. It's affordable and easier to find than oem. Only wish they made them available in longer lengths for the driver side.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Put these parts on a 50 chevy fleetline with a camaro clip. Fit perfect. Very happy with the quality and the customer service is excellent as usual. The only problem was they were on back order and it took a few weeks to get them. All in all, I couldn't be happier.
Pros:
  • Fit Perfect
  • High Quality
Cons:
  • Back Order

The metal on metal pivot point is where the tubular portion pivots on the cross shaft of the control arm. There is a grease zerk at this location.

When used on a street car that sees some miles these will wear out quickly due to the pivot point being a steel on steel connection. There are no bushings to slow down the wear.

Can I mount the ball joint under the a arm for more angle?

Answers

You can bolt the ball joint to the bottom side of the plate but you will not gain any control arm angle. The angle that you see will be slightly more but the only angle that will affect the suspension geometry is the angle from the pivot point of the ball joint to the center of the cross shaft of the control arm. The only way to get more angle and actually affect your roll center is to use a taller ball joint stud or move the control arm mount lower on the frame.

Answers

This 1970-81 camaro a arm will bolt to the frame of your 76 Nova, however we do not recommend it for street use. It does not use the stock ball joint like your 76 Nova has. The ball joint that this a arm is designed for will require you to ream the taper in you spindle to fit the larger ball joint. Also these a arms are a steel on steel pivot and you will notice that they are somewhat noisy and transfer a lot of vibration into the car as compared to a typical street tubular control arm. Also due to the fact that they are steel on steel they will wear out and need to be replaced fairly frequently.

These arms do hold up, but of course in a wreck or wall hit they will bend like anything else. We use a K6024 style ball joint that you have to ream your spindle with a 7 degree reamer to make fit correct.

We have never tested in your application but these are used on dirt circle track cars with no issues. The only concern in your application would be if front end slams down with weight of motor may bend or break part.

This control arm will not accept the stock Camaro ball joint. The pickup ball joint will need to be used and your spindle reamed to fit it.
