Rear Control Arms
I've got a 95 Buick Roadmaster, 90,000 miles. I just got her back from the shop today, replaced oil pan gasket, oil filter gasket,oil level sensor, front crank seal,valve cover, water pump, distributor, spark plugs and wires, ignition coil and control module, fuel filter fuel pressure regulator, fuel pump, fuel sender unit and replaced the transmission cooler line. With no more leaks, weird noises, or stalls on startup I'm ready to make the ultimate sleeper b body...
I now have
a set of spindles and lower control arms off a 96 9c1.
Plus a new set of the 5/8 ball joints.
a 96 9c1 rear end with the rotors and 3.10 gears and rear sway bar
Plus the stealth bolt and goodrich steel braided lines
All four 9c1 springs
Plus new sets of Monroe SS front and rear shocks
I also have the 9c1 drive shaft which i may or may not need
I'm waiting for my energy suspension poly front control arm bushing set.
The one thing I'm confused about is my choice for rear control arms. The 9c1 rear end they simply cut the rear upper arms to release it. My road master has useable uppers but they are pretty rusted and I would rather replace them now.
I've read that the impala and caprice rear wheels aren't centered in the well, and many people get adjustable or extended control arms to fix this problem. I believe my Roadmaster wheels are centered. I realized the control arm placement will effect the drive shaft length so I want make sure I buy arms that will work with either a stock road master drive shaft or the pc1 drive shaft.
As you can see, I listen and put my trust in your forum so please advise me on what controls will work best ...and why...
