Hi there

I am new here, and new to Vans, and new to America... Whole load of newness going on!

I picked up a 1975 G10 van last week, and it turns out that the tracking issue i was having is because the passenger side lower control arm is all bent out of shape.

From what i can work out the upper control arm is a pretty generic Chevrolet part and there are third party suppliers.

However, I can't find a lower control arm. Might have found one in a breakers in Arizona, but does anyone know if the lower control arm from a C10 would work.

Also while i am at it i was thinking of dropping the front two inches... a drop spindle perhaps. I have had a search as I am sure that this has been done before, but don't seem to be able to find anything.

Many thanks, all help gratefully received.

T

Welcome to our group, welcome to vanning, and welcome to America!
I was going to guess you were from the UK, but then I saw your introduction post.
"Breakers" gave it away. LOL We call them junkyards and salvage yards here. smile

I don't know if that lower control arm from the C10 is interchangeable, but that information would be handy to know.

Lowered spindles for a C10 work for our vans, and here's a good thread about it.
(Photobucket just made some changes, so we've lost a lot of pictures around here)

SO if anyone has the same issue.

G10 control arms are interchangeable with C 10 along as you have the correct size brake rotors. Apparently these came in either 1' or 11/4"

or if you are rebuilding the front as i am doing you end up replacing the rotors anyway...

incidentally i ended up with a 60s c10 control arm which doesn't require bushings.

Amazing how much nicer the van is to drive now.
