I have a 55 belair. I'm replacing all the old wore out parts on the front end. The problem is finding parts. I ordered a steering linkage kit in june, and it's on back order. Now they say it won't be in until october. The kit is ( Idler arm, Pitman arm, and Center link.) The order is from Ecklers. Any idea who would have these parts, I would really like to drive my car this year. Thanks for any help.

Have you checked out your local NAPA parts store? You should be able to get all of those items from them. (in stock, no shipping) The idler arm bushings and center link ends are under 15 bucks but a new idler arm is 150 dollars so you might want to think about rebuilding yours.
Tie rod ends are 50-70 bucks according to napa online.

9 Toes....Are the parts missing, bent, or broken?.....If not, they can be rebuilt, except for the pitman arm.

9 Toes, Check with CCP. CPP sells the parts you need. They are a trifive vendor and run an ad above. Let them know you heard about them here it helps them know their ad $ are working.
