68 Camaro Steering Arm

Is a quick ratio steering arm and a standard steering arm the same length?

The longer the arm ... the faster it is ...
The shorter the arm ... the slower it is ...

That's on the same box

There were 2 or 3 different lengths of steering arms that fit that suspension design. The longer the steering arm, the slower the steering. Shorter arms are usually found on cars with power steering, but they'll work fine with manual steering, it'll just steer harder.

Pitman arms are the other way around. A longer pitman arm makes for quicker steering.
