  1. Looking for a 1961 Buick Third Member out of a full size car. Thanks
  2. Members, looking for a 1961 third member with tall gears .. thanks Jimmi V.
  3. Members, does anyone know the stock ride height of a 1957 Buick Century? And from what measure point on the frame to the ground. Thanks I have no body on frame..that’s why I need frame height. Jimm8 V.
  4. Members, does anyone know the gears in a 1961 Buick Rearend? thanks Jimmi V.
  5. Yes, putting a 700R4 in paired with the 1966 401 nailhead.... Trying to find a 61 differential to switch out my stock one.( bolt in ) then get driveline made. my question is where exactly do I attach the trailing arms on the axle to get the most benefit for securing the rearend...from what I understand I do not want them straight...I am not drag racing,want them at an angle for cornering support, and front to back support, the panhard bar is for side to side. if I go wide..need to remove lower shock mounts...where would be the best place to put them...just pivot bottom of
  6. Bloo, thanks for all the info....a lot to chew on I am going to put the torque tube back on for angle alignment....believe it should be 3* negative...and motor will be 3* positive (or visa versa)... can’t remember at this exact moment... Being the torque tube was an important part of the rear end ...taking it out means we need to replace it with something to take on that responsibility ..for me I chose the C10 trailing arms...from my understanding they need to creat an angle to offset the forces...like a 4 link would do... I have my frame on stands and it is level forward
  7. I am going to change the pumpkin with a 61 Buick....
  8. John, sorry I wasn’t clear,....not keeping torque tube..going with open drive..bought car with no drivetrain... motor is going to be a 1966 401 paired with a 700R4... Thanks Jim
  9. John, yes exactly....just concerned about the placement of the trailing arms...do they need to be as close to the brake hubs as possible to get a decent angle for rigidity for the rear...or can I mount then on the open spot inward of the spring cups. thanks Jim
  10. Have a 1957 Buick Century... Have a question, picked up C10 trailing arms.....brought them home and put them under the frame to look . Now my understand is that these arms replace the torque tube and need to be at the steepest angle possible..from the furthest outside part of the axle to the closest point at the intersection of the X without impending the channel for the driveshaft. That being said.....my axle has the shock mounts on the front of them...and are located near the brake hub, next to them going towards the pumpkin is the spring cup. So the closest place I could mount the
