A few people on the board have gone the AFCO camber correction route I noticed, and my ingals are just about done, so have been thinking of doing the same. My care has gotten so bad I don't dare drive it. I was just wondering if anyone out there who has done this, or knows of it, could help me out.

This is what I know so far from other posts:

19514 swaged steel tube 14" threaded (x2) $15.60ea
30211 tie rod end LH $15.50
30212 tie rod end RH $15.50
10420 rod end 3/4in RH $11.85
10421 rod end 3/4in LH $11.85
20023k rod end/bushing kit 3/4" lower (x2) $17.85ea
10140 jam nut 3/4" RH (x2) $0.95ea
10141 jam nut 3/4" LH (x2) $0.95ea

Am I missing any parts? I am going to be jacking up the car and doing this myself (pinching pennys) so if there are any other parts I am going to need, or tools other then wrenches, please let me know. Also, I heard you need to cut a half inch off of each bushing, where? Thanks for the help.

The 20023k rod end bushing kit comes with standard thread rod ends along with the bushings. If you buy 2 reverse thread tie rod ends and the bushing kit, you don't have to purchase the rod ends separately (10420 and 10421). I can't remember if 20023k came with jam nuts so I would order 2 reverse and 2 standard regardless.

19514 swaged steel tube 14" threaded (x2) $15.60ea
20023k rod end/bushing kit 3/4" lower (x2) $17.85ea
10140 jam nut 3/4" RH (x2) $0.95ea
10141 jam nut 3/4" LH (x2) $0.95ea
30211 or 30212 tie rod end (x2)$15.50 (I can't remember if RH or LH is reverse thread)

You have to cut 1/2" off the end of each bushing that fit into either side of the rod end (2 per side).

RH is right hand thread
LH is left hand thread

One is normal...one reverse.

I'm going to go out on a limb and say RH because...lefty loosey...righty tighty...is normal and LH is reverse

looks to me like the tie rod takes the place of the ball joint.

The tie rod ends (30211 or 30212) are the ball joints. The rod end/bushing kit (20023k) are the bearing side/helm joint. Instalation took about 10-15mins per side. Just remove the entire rear upper control arm and replace it with the new one. I measured the stock arm and set the new one to the same length so I was in the ballpark when it was installed.
