    Factory Wishbone suspension

    This ones aimed more at the owners of early GM group cars

    Im after some measurements/pics please

    My brother owns this



    Which has wishbone suspension on the front and triangulated arms on the rear

    Now the problem is this car is quite rare and getting parts is an impossibility (took 3 yrs to get a rear side window)
    He has striped it down to a bare shell (almost) and wants to replace the bushes for poly ones

    We were wondering if the GM range would fit as that is what it seem to be based on (GM A bodies)

    So does any one out there in RnS land have some poly bushes waiting to be fitted that they can measure for us please

    (ps, Its ruinning a Ford 302 HO now )

    it might be worth looking at early Carlton stuff, i had a 88 GSI Carlton which i scrapped and my bro had all the lowered suspension off it for his 95 Omega...the basic's are the same, i have a 2001 Omega and thats the same too, the carlton came out in about 78 and as far as i no they didnt change that much under there, maybe worth trying this site www.superflex.co.uk they are quite helpful and do loads for old cars, hope this helps

    Have tried Jim

    Have YOU ever contacted them ................... Na mate not listed bye

    But have found these http://www.polybush.co.uk/ that list all the misc bushes in seperate pdf files so its a start

    But also you having a Muzzy might be able to help to, as i said the wishbone front end uterlises a single mounting bottom arm as per some mustangs (not too clued up on yanks) but the upper arms n stubs are as gm

    Make any sense ???

    well i used them years ago and they were ok but maybe different people now, as for the muzzy front end it was all basically the same from 65-73, also Torino, Falcon are the same, hang on ive just thought! a mate is rebuilding the front end on his Ranchero and has some new bushes waiting to be fitted, i will give him a call over the weekend and let u no...
