DO ALL THE METRIC GM CARS USE THE SAME TRAILING ARMS TOP AND BOTTOM? ARE THE 78 MODEL MONTES METRIC OR DOES IT START WITH THE 79S AND GOES THRU 89 MODELS? ARE THE BUICKS, PONTIACS, OLDS, ETC THE SAME AS MONTE CARLO? THANKS, NEIL

Are the big metric trailing arms the same as the small metric?

The lowers off a 4th gen Camaro are the same as the metric too.

i run a 78 regal chassis, as far as i know the only difference between 78 and 79 and newer is one set of bearings inside the rearend are different and the spindle/rotors are shorter on the shaft that the bearings ride on, everything else seems the same.
