This end uses the frame side ball stud assembly.
This end slides over the engine side ball stud.
The cheaper reproductions available from
many parts stores, is not usable in my opinion.
NOS vs Repo 1
The z bar at the top is a new old stock GM part,
and is 8 1/8" long. The frame side ball stud slides
The z bar on the bottom is a reproduction part
that is carried by most parts stores, including
Chevy big car specialists, is 8 9/16" long. It will
not fit, or will be too tight, between the frame
bracket and the engine. The frame side ball stud
will not fit.
NOS vs Repo 1
The length can be shortened, and the frame side
can be honed out. But the main problem is the
"clocking" of the arms is off.
NOS vs Repo 2
The reproduction of GM part #3846881, that is
sold by 4 Speed Conversions, has the correct
length, clocking and the ball stud slides right in.
This is a classic case of you get what you pay

Factory correct applications are your responsibility. GM made part and part # changes with no rhyme but a reason (no production interruptions at any cost).
Application charts are for replacement parts that were available at the time of parts book printing.
My observations come from the parts I have in my collection or other reliable sources your parts may differ.
If Factory correctness is your goal, do more research, join car clubs,
forums and buy an assembly manual if one is available for your Project Car (you wont be sorry).
This is a fun and interesting part of the hobby!
