Front Control Arms

I'm trying to order Z28 front control arms for my SS. I'm building it as a dedicated track car so I want the best parts I can get for the suspension.

I ordered part numbers 23105014, 23105015, 23105018, & 21305019.

According to the casting numbers on the control arms it appears I got 92236898, 92236899, 20951300, & 20951301. The bushings on these have spaces in the bushings, I assume to soften the ride.

Can anyone tell me, or post a picture, if the Z28 control arms have the spaces?

My understanding is the only difference between the SS & Z28 control arms is the bushings.

I just want make sure I'm getting the correct parts before a raise a ruckus with Rock Auto.

Thanks Craig

Saved weight and stronger bushing. Gained a lot of castor!

If you don’t want sphericals, get the 2017 SS 1LE radius Rods and get the sleeves and bolts/nuts

Also note I used the brake duct cooling...

Thanks

The only difference is 5th gen z/28 bushing insert(white-looks yellowish in pic) is some sort of solid plastic vs. soft bushing insert in all other 5th gen. The actual part numbers on cast arms and on the bushing are the same exact on both.

I want to thank everyone that helped me out.

I think they are the Z28 control arms. It was a bit confusing the Z28 forward arms have a whitish center piece that you can see in the picture posted by RedhotLS1. The arms that cam off the car had similar color center pieces. The difference was the hardness.

Thanks again.
Craig
