Need some quick accurate answers. I am very familar with the 1980ish small metric frame, Monte, Regal...etc.....I am not familar with the 1980ish Impala size metric frame. I need to know the following differences of the Impala metric frame compared the Monte metric frame. Wheelbase? Width? Rear crossmember(where rear uppers mount), is it the same as the Monte metric frame? Would a metric rearend housing bolt right in to the Impala frame? Yes, we must retain stock type four link. What front suspension is interchangable between the two? THX

check the street stock forun there is a post about mettric impala frames on there right now but a quick run down they are wider heavier 112 wheelbase and no a metric rearend will be to narrow to fit in it but i believe the uppers are the same tho. front end wise the impala is better you wouldn't want to take any parts off the small fronts and put it on the bigger one tho. they are a ggod stub tho thats what jets and kraft kars are built on i'm thinking of using one myself on my b mod i'm gonna start building
