I'm after one of these if anyone has one?
My car has been off the road for months with niggling problems of varying sorts.

I'm so close to getting it running but my Pitman arm is shot apparently and I need a new one.
anyone know of an existing one in the UK I can buy?
Nearly all US sites state an unspecified August delivery and I'm desperate to go for a drive.

I don't know if anyone in the UK will have one, but have you checked Rockauto.com ?

There appears to be a few variations, so you'll need to check all the details to get the right one.

Thanks for that. Never heard of them before so thanks for the tip.
I will check them out.
And yes, I did find out that there seems to about 8,000 different types of Pitman Arm on the Camaro.
Oh joy.

If you've not heard of Rockauto before, you need to be aware of the shipping pitfalls. When choosing your shipping option, don't just always plump for the cheapest option. Look at each one and find which ones quote VAT included. Those ones will sail through customs and to your door without the courier company adding their own taxes and charges.

If you buy a lot of things, get yourself an overseas spending card that doesn't charge a transaction fee. I've got a Halifax Clarity card for just that. There are others available, look at MoneySavingExpert pages for more info.
