    G body front tubular a arms

    Thinking about tubular A arms for a 1980 BBC MAULIBU. I found some on maliburacing.com and gbodyparts.com . They are BMR brand at $560 and are made with DOM tubing. Anyone using these or suggest others? The CM ones are $900 which is not in the budget.

    This is for bracket drag racing. My stock A arms are OK, but going to be rebuilding them if don't go to the tubular ones.

    I also found some plastic front inner fender panels for $250. anyone else know of others?

    Mark,
    Can't you find an old malibu or elky around, they are the same from 1978 to 1988 and they are plastic from the factory, i still have the originals in both my 80 Malibu and my 79 Elky. I only cut a small section out of the left front for the front mounted fuel cell.
    I think the Olds and Buicks G bodys have the same panels in them.

    Zip.

    G body

    I already have plastic ones but they have seen better days. Looking for new ones just for cosmetic reasons.

    If the Speedway chrome moly upper A arms 91031134 fit a Malibu, then they are what I am looking for. They also have Moog ball joints for $15 each. Couldn't find any lower tubular ones though in Speedway. Maybe stock car guys don't use them?

    They are symetrical so you can use 2 right hand ones? I see the left hand one listed is 1/2" wider for a stock car.

    Roundy round stuff has one side longer for the stagger to be built in, the right side is stock, so you use 2 rights, just flip the center link over, if it not universal...Tubular lowers are hard to come by. TRZ makes some for a s10, which is the same, but they are pricey...
