Default OT: Need a front suspension picture from a 1970"s chevy

have a 1970 elcamino and my buddys having a hard time putting it back together. He can't get the tie rods and drag link and idler arm to go in correctly. Any help would be great. I will e-mail him the picture or fax it to him.

Thanks

Does it show the whole steering? I need a good picture of how thw whole thing goes back together. can't tell if the tie rods are even put on right. Inner has the grease zerk on the side and the outer has it on the bottom? also drag link placement.
Thanks
Rick

the pic shoes tie rod end to end including the idler and pitman arm, hopefuly it will have what you need. I just faxed it to you.
Let me know if its not what you are looking for and I could try to dig up something else.

Martin,
It looks like a good pic to me. I will send it to him tonight and if it doesn't work out could I bug you for more info? Thanks for the help.
