Title: Suspension Compatibility
Post by: Bob Schaefer on April 25, 2011, 04:11:54 AM

I'd like to know if the frame and suspension parts for a '66 and/or '71 Fury are all interchangeable with a '69 Monaco.
I don't know what, if anything, I'll need to replace, but I'd at least like to know what I will look for.
I've looked at, and I see that their Lower Control Arms are for '65-'73 C's, which leads me to believe that the Uppers would match, too, but I don't want to assume. I am planning to try to remove the uppers and lowers, and get them sandblasted, as suggested here, but I have come across a couple of opportunities to get some that are done already, so if they'd fit...
I also may need to look into the front subframe, which appears to be very dented and rusty. I'd like to try and have someone help me weld in some new metal, but if I can get something in decent shape...
Also, the crossmember where the Torsion Bars anchor, and the Transmission Crossmember too. If they are the same through '65-'73, that would be good to know.
Thanks all.

69 Fury yes.  Only some of the earlier parts will work
