I'm about to tear into my front end and I noticed something. I was reading Simply's rebuild thread again and saw he was using the Moog shaft. Looking at mine I have two different shafts. The right side is round and the left has flats. I looked at RA and they show them too. They are a Dorman PN and made in Taiwan.

I don't really want to replace them with these Dormans unless there is a need for the difference. Do I need the additional + camber style such as the Moog K6210 provide?
Thanks all,

Sorry, I can't really provide any input on this other than....when rebuilding my FE, I just went with new Shafts too but was also rebuilding my original arms and not replacing the entire upper arm.

At a minimum, I would at least make sure both sides are exactly the same. Having different Shafts on each side could pose more of an issue as opposed to which you decided to use.

4Door, Thanks. I was wondering about this because I think my 9c1 front suspension is all OE. The links I provided show a different shaft for each side. They are the same as my current ones. I guess the way to go without any other input here is to get the off set shafts. Thanks again. You're one I can look to for help and lots of money spending ideas. :grin2:
