Rear control arm measurements

Postby rustorbust » Sun Jul 08, 2007 11:45 pm

Wondering if anyone knows the exact measurements on the rear control arms on 71-73 vegas. I am going to make my own adjustable rear control arms and would rather get the numbers from somone else if they had them then rather pulling the out of the car?

Thanks

14 inches. I measured them from the center of the bolt holes.-------------Danny

Are the rear lower control arms the same on all Hbodys?

They are the same length, I am not sure if they were beefed up at all for V8's but I don't think so.

uppers are a bit shorter,
some later H bodies used a wider front lower bushing where it mounts to the chassis.

I just need to know the length of the upper bar for a place to start making my own double adjustable straight uppers
