Differences of beaumont vs chevelle


I am redoing the suspension on my beaumont as some of the components are worn out. Rockauto doesn't list any parts, however they do list parts for chevelle.

 

I understand that there are differences IE emblems, bumpers, grills, interior, but in a mechanical sense are there any? I recall trying to replace the antenna with a chevelle one and got caught off guard when I found out that it wouldn't fit. For this reason I ask in an effort to avoid any surprises. Ordering is online is cheap so long as you get the right parts.

I'd say the chassis parts are the same as a Chevelle.

Also, this is posted in the Full Size Chassis Tech Forum, you may want to have it moved to the Beaumont section.

I got moved it over to the Beaumont Chassis forum, thanks for pointing that out Clint.

Blackbird307, for any of your chassis stuff you can order for Chevelle. If you lift the body off a Chevelle and the body off the same year/model Beaumont, what's left sitting on the ground is the same.

Actually if you go on Rockauto and look under Pontiac you will find a subsection for Beaumonts.

I believe there may be a difference with the upper control arms on the earlier Beaumonts. You didn't mention what year you had but on my 1965 Beaumont, the upper control arms used a bearing assembly as opposed to the bushings in the Chevelle.

I ended up putting in aftermarket control arms so it didn't matter. Also my inner tie rod ends come with grease fitting in the wrong location and I couidn't use them as they hit the cross member. The original ones had the fitting facing the side of the car and the aftermarket facing the back.

Good luck.
