I had a false alarm. I found my other pin at the body shop. So thanks for the offer Meridious, but don't need them yet. I still don't know what to do about the spacers. The guy putting my front end together doesn't think there is any room.

The 60 Shop Manual (Page 8-9) on installing the lower A-Arm, says to install shims "as needed to remove fore-aft movement".

On my 60, each lower A-Arm only has one spacer on the rear cross member side. So, the way I understand it, it's whatever it takes, if any at all, so that it doesn't move front to back.

Yeah, my shop manual says that as well. I was looking at a parts ID layout and miracled it into my head that there was supposed to be 3 on the frame-side because of the silly picture.

bleh.

Just for reference, here is the parts ID layout I have for the 58-60 suspension:

That's interesting. This is the one that I was going by for the 60. That's the way mine was when I took it apart.
