Sorry, I meant cover that. Late 1983 model year.

A change in upper control arm geometry meant different specs. The service bulletins and parts catalogs don't agree on the exact change point but your 1986 car would clearly use the later spec

Yes, later spec = specs shown in earlier reply = applicable to your 1986 car
