I was planning to refresh and / or update -74 monaco suspension and some seals and parts. I have red some stories in the forum and seen great pictures, thank you all for that! What I’m looking for is actual ”spare numbers” and where to get those or people whom you have ordered the stuff.
Suspension; - front and rear shocks (some has used Bilstein?) part number? - all bushings front & rear? Does some one make kit for these? - ball joints? - torsion bars? - etc typical wearing parts.
Body; - seals (windows, doors, trunk, etc) These seems to be tough to get?
Motor; - is ther common tune up’s kits? E.g spark plugs, filters, distributor etc.
Wheels & tires; - proper cop tyres and wheels (235/75/15 and 6.5 wide wheels) - where to get?
Others; blumo specific topics; - 140 speedo - S6 unity lamp? Whom to contact at Unity to get right model?
I sent my upper and lower control arms, steering box and pump to Firm Feel. Had a complete upgrade to stage one steering and new large torsion bars. They provide all new bushings, ball joints and double adjustable tie rods. Ain't cheap but we run the Great Race and have no suspension trouble. They know C bodies and can provide you the correct shocks as well. Also did an iso delete rear anti roll for our high speed turns. Trick stuff, but again; you get what you pay for. We have more in suspension than the car is worth but we drive the heck out of it. Phish
Of course to do it right you need Sister Mary Stigmata (a.k.a. The Penguin) to supervise with a whip!
