    I've never seen one that isn't straight. Post a pic like Scott suggested. I'm guessing it's bent though.

    I didn't notice any curvature to my stock unit (spare me any jokes on that statement )

    I have it laying under my bed as I am not using it. I was going to sell it to another member, but never heard back from him on it.

    The tq. arm has to be straight. If not, you must replace it. OEM is not that expensive but if you are going to put money into it I would go to the aftermarket for adjustable units.

    OEM are around $100 + shipping. Aftermarket units are anywhere from $250-$350, depending what you get. UMI's adjustable one is $300.

    PM me if you're looking for a stock replacement for cheap.
    It's on jackstands.

    You should replace the stock GM stamped out piece of junk with a nice aftermarket unit, check out this sight:

    BMR Suspension - The Leader in High Performance Suspension & Chassis

    They are not a parts house, they manufacture their own suspension products.

    Links to non-sponsors are not allowed. If you can afford to get an aftermarket one, go that route. If money is tight, a stock OEM one isn't a bad alternative either. I didn't have a single issue with mine for 10 years on stock power.

    Sorry about that, I will only reference the company, and not post the link.

    Last i remember you're around Orlando. My stock unit is most likely coming off this weekend.
    If you don't pick up an aftermarket one anytime soon i can send my stock one up with a friend and you can pick it up sometime. I'm sure he wouldn't mind.
