Can the newer style rear suspension be utilized in the early vega, with out the use of upper control arms. IE monza rear with torque arm and panhard rod no upper control arms. thank you.

John,
You have to weld in the plate from the monza for the panhard rod. I did it on both of my 73's, just unbolt the upper control arms and your done. Tony

You can install the Torque Arm Suspension in the
early Vega. You will first need to remove the
re-enforcement for the Panhard Rod from the body of the donor
car and install it on the early Vega
underbody.

You will also need a transmission with the torque
arm bracket and the correct torque arm for your
application. The rest is basically a bolt in...Robert
