    I got a kit for my '66 Polara, no issues in a few years and 3500 miles.

    Funny you should bring this up. I bought a set and the mating surface was .375" thicker than the LBJ they replaced. There were no markings on my old ones, don't think they were ChryCo originals.
    So the increased thickness caused negative camber.
    Used offset upper control arm bushings to bring it back into spec.
    Your results may vary.
