Identify camaro spindles

I like to order dropped spindles for my 56 panel.
Welded in a camaro frontclip, but don't know witch year exactly.
On the spindles is the number; 371676 RH and 371675 LH.
Are the last two digits the year of make?

Also having some spare ones with the numbers;
329854 GM RH 16N
and 329358 GM LH 15N

Hope some one can help me out.
Thanks.

I just got a Camaro front subframe for my '57. I'll look at the casting numbers when I get home from work and post them in the morning. Mine is a 1977.

They must be first generation. Mine are either 371875LH or 371076RH. It's hard to tell with a flashlight and a full moon. Either way it pretty well rules out second generation spindles.

1st generation doesn't have a left and right knuckle/spindle. The steering arms and caliper brackets bolt on, so you must be reading #s off of the steering arm only if they are 1stgen. If the arm and knuckle/bracket are all one piece, they're not 1stgen.

More checking reveals 371676 RH and 371675 LH as single piece 2ndgen Camaro knuckles. The knuckle/spindle, steering arm and caliper bracket should be a single piece.

O.K. they are from a 2ndgen camaro.
Like to order a bushing and balljoint/tierod set all so.
And while looking in the summit catalog i found this.

70-72,73-74,75-79,80-81.
I know that i have 1 5/8'' lower arm bushings but are there other differences?
The best way should be somewhere where i can read the casting numbers i think.

As i live in the Netherlands , ordering something and finding out the sent the wrong parts is not a lot of fun.


Thanks all.

Pretty much everything is the same for all 2nd gen Camaro front end components except the 80-81 has different upper control arm bushings.
