This Idler arm was for a 1/2 ton HD or 3/4 ton truck. Mine is a C3500 9000 GVWR and called for the Super Heavy Duty Idler Arm. Big difference in the size of the arms. Issue was corrected by purchasing correct arm.

Upgrade version of the steering idler

This replaced the lower cost option that went bad. I realize that even the oem idler had some real design issues. We'll see how this performs.

          Initially, I bought the cheaper one. It was just as loose as the old one. I returned it and upgraded to this one. Problem solved. Save yourself the extra work by spending a little more. It fits the standard duty, even though it is "heavy duty."
