Tips, Tricks & Pics for Monte Carlo, Regal, Cutlass, Malibu, Grand Prixs. The years range anywhere from 78 to 88 I believe. If you have any ideas on building these lets hear them. If you have PICS Lets See Them
I have one I've been building...forever...long story. There was alot of info on them before the old site crashed. Some people were tilting them like new style fords and having them last quite a bit longer.
Alot of people don't like the 3.8 buick v6 that is in them...or the 200r trans. The c-clip 7.5in 10 bolts aren't any good. I replaced mine with a spooled 9 inch with 4.56 gears that I welded brackets on to make it fit a g-body.
I hear the back needs alot of help or they go straight down. I notched both sides twice and tucked the trunk so that the back is against the floor.
I will have plenty of before and after photos this year.

C4 sounds good to me. Looks like some good info getting started here ;D ;D.........
I am running a Malibu that had a diesel in it. is there anything different to these (frame structure) than the gas powered ones. the springs are heavier i noticed.
also people say the backs are soft. where actually do they want to bend. the arches seem to be "flatter" than most cars and people have tried to shorten the rear frames to make them harder and this is like a shortened frame car. Or do you build them just like the fullsize with strategic cutting to the frame and include the ever popular praying part.
