  1. Summit Racing poly control arm bushings?

    Steering, Suspension, and Chassis
    Hey guys, still pulling parts together for my front suspension refresh. Was going to go with the Energy Suspension 3.3101G, but found Summit house brand SUM-776000 for a bit cheaper. Does anyone have any experience with these? Summit is usually pretty good for middle of the road parts. Think...
  2. First Generation Shock Absorbers

    Originality
    Anyone have a source for the correct size front upper shock bushings? And maybe a flaps (friendly local auto parts store) part number for the four lower bushings? I attempted searching #45389 and 3790341 but nothing close surfaced. C2O has the lower but I can't find anything larger than a 1.25"...

    Steering, Suspension, and Chassis
    Sup guys? I've got an issue here with my 78 sitting WAY too low! It originally had the L6 now has a small block.

  8. Body mount bushings on a '65 ?

    Steering, Suspension, and Chassis
    Does the '65 have body mount bushings? I can find them for '68 and up but don't see anything for my '65. I don't see anything for the core support either. It goes fast. Now I want it to drive straight and not rattle.
  9. 71 Door sloppy even after new pins

    Body and Interior
    We put new pins and bushings in the doors and rehung them Saturday...however the drivers door still has slop in it. The lower bushing on that side went in much easier than the top.. I'm assuming the lower hole is possibly "wallered" out???? anybody ran into to this previously? Thanks Tim
