Perfect fit and great value

While I can't comment on the longevity of this product as I just installed it, I suspect it'll be fine. I can say it was a perfect fit and the price was great.

1998 S10 2wd: First time I've ever strayed from established brand-name front end parts, and the last. This idler arm had more up/down play than the old one it was replacing. It was bad enough that the truck couldn't be aligned. You'll probably buy it anyway, but remember you have been warned.

                    Hi Dsoss50, great question! the installation depends upon the skill level of the person performing the operation. For help with your project, I recommend purchasing a repair manual specifically for your vehicle. This should be able to assist you further into detail on how to repair or replace specific parts.

                • Q:

                  There are two Driveworks Steering Idler Arms, PN DW-K6187T and DW-K6251T. They have different lengths 6.14" and 5.23" respectively. The website says both are compatible with my 2000 GMC Jimmy. Why are the lengths different, and how would this affect the ride/steering of the vehicle?
