67 Parisienne rear suspension question?


Has anyone ever tried mounting the lower control arms in the lower mounting holes? Apperently they are for the f41 Or station wagon?? If I add a rear stabilizer bar should I move the control arms as well? Sounds like that's what the factory did for the f41 upgrade... Thanks for all the help guys My car just keeps getting better and it has a lot to do with help I get here!

I read about this on page 4-10 of the Pontiac chassis shop manual (1967) Anyone ever experiment with this?

No pics. I just thought about possibly adding a stabilizer bar and when doing some research I read the paragraph in the chassis manual that talks about these extra holes? I don't know much more about it? Just figured that a stabilizer bar was kinda the same as the f41 option so do people move the lower control arm when they add rear stabilizer bars?

I originally added a bar that bolts to the arms in my 67. Left it in the original hole. Can't really see how you'd notice any seat of the pants difference, except perhaps a slight change in ride height. Never heard of anyone actually talk about it in length.

Just adding the bar will really transform it. It's a must do, one of the top bang for your buck performance improvements imop.

Well to follow up I got a chance to crawl under the car today And... There is only one set of holes! Guess that solves my problem! Lol

I finally figured out how to grab the nut for the forward bolt on the lower control arms.  Best to use an open end crowsfoot wrench on 3/8" drive breaker bar.   Should be 15/16" crowsfoot.    Access to the nut is not very good, and an open end wrench just doesn't get a good grasp on the nut.

It might work.  I ended up buying a 15/16" crowsfoot from the local Snap-On guy.
