    Default Big brake mess of parts.

    I kinda threw myself into this since I needed to replace the brake hard lines. I thought I had all the parts, but not sure what is what.
    I have arms with numbers cast into them of 140, 150, 133 and 155, which go "together"?
    Also, the cross bar, aside from obvious more hefty appearance, is there a difference?
    Last question, the washer on the inside, with the ridges, where can those be obtained? I can only find the 2 here on the one.

    I want to say there is an LH and an RH cast into those somewhere. Not sure about the other numbers, possibly just mold numbers or something of that nature. I'm also not aware of any particular difference among the cross bars.

    Have a better pic of the washer ? I honestly don't remember what that even looks like. McMaster-Carr might have something that will serve. I don't know that it needs to be ridged or whatever, that probably was more to do with the original rubber bushings. It does need to be there and it needs to fit reasonably well though.

    Looked back at some of my posts and the bump stop hole for the upper a arms is towards the rear of the car. This should help you out with at least determining what is LH and RH side of things.

    Could also be a Julian date, which is the day of the year out of 365 it was manufactured. This is found on lots of stampings.

    upper control arms... camber/caster bolts up... short end towards the rear. Caster on these cars should always angle the upper ball joint rearward of the lower control arm ball joint.
