New springs or a different rear end? Looks good. My white 94 with Monroe severe service shocks is sagging bad in the rear when sitting next to my 95 with the air shcoks. Im gonna try and see if i can get that air suspension hooked up again.

nice, it just bolted rigth in, but now you have to change the master cylinder adn proportioning valve, for one of a9c1 or impala, and do the bolt mod, because nothing is going to change on the braking

I miss my 79... Now why didn't I think of that when I had my car. Did you swap out the drive shaft too? I remember my 79 had a double jointed drive shaft...
