    Actually I ordered complete ridetech suspension kit with wilwood brake kit and it came with tall spindle when I tried to install the bracket of brake caliper it was not matching the holes.so I checked they send me the wrong spindle from 69.now I am scared they won't send anything wrong again cuz they told me to research which spindle is is good for my 74 ridetech suspension .

    Compare with the stock the stock ball joint is thinner.

    RT only makes one spindle for 67-81 Camaros. It’s a tall spindle but the shaft size and caliper holes are same as a stock short spindle from a 67-69 Camaro.

    But regardless the kit is a compete suspension it should all work together.

    Why are you using the stock upper arm and ball joint ? Use the parts in the RT kit.
