    just keep in mind the Camaro toe arms are designed for the Camaro with 14mm bolts on the outer position, while the G8 uses a 12mm bolt.

    You positive on this? I picked up rear toes from a ZL1 (factory spherical bushed, pn 22845487) and the ends were not indexed or ID'd at all. With out knowing ahead of time, I sure could have missed it.

    could be wrong on some of this, had a few 80 hour weeks getting the shop setup, but the Camaro uses 14mm bolts at both ends, so it wouldn't matter on a Camaro, but i'm fairly certain the G8 uses a 14mm on the inside, and a 12mm on the outside.
