LOWER CONTROL ARM BUSHING STYLE – Designed for use with ROUND bushing only, cars with oval bushings will require new lower control arms.
COIL SPRING TYPE: MOST 64-67 GM A-bodies require a rear spring that has a “pigtail” on the bottom and is “open” on the top. SOME 67 GM A-bodies require a rear spring that is “pigtail” on the top AND bottom. This is very easily determined by looking at the stock springs. If the car had pigtail/pigtail springs and a pigtail/open spring is installed, the car will sit about 2″ too high.
