Shorten the front end if possible of not use aslong of a bumper shock as allowed. Pre bending is a must on these cars. Personally i pre bend right im filler neck area. Very hard car with right set of rules
When you pre bend do you cut frame bend and reweld or heat up with a torch then bend. I cut my cutlass but didnt reweld rear went up and in really nice but wasnt much strength there due to the frame not being solid first hit it was in all the way.
We have only run one of these, a 4 door sedan. Our back end went wrong, so I'm the wrong person to say how to do it right. We tucked the deck lid, tossed the rear bumper, notched the frame about 12" from the rear valance, and pre bent it at the notch, with all thread through the frame in front of the notches, and the deck lid welded 6 on, 6 off. In hind sight, I would have dimpled the frame rails up closer to the humps in addition to what we did. Here was the disappointing end result.

Just got a Granada with the 8.8 under it. I know they are c-clip which isn't ideal, but right now I don't really have another rear-end to put under it. For compacts will the 8.8 hold up "ok" or do I need to look for an 8" or 9" or something?
