Default Van Steel upper control arms

Hi there,
Looking for a set of upper control arms from Van Steel.
I have the lowers already.
I am going QA1 semi-coil-overs when I redo the front end.

I am looking for the ones with delrin bushings, not old original replacements. Txs

Also I "might" be going to Lakeland end of this week for NCRS swap meet.

Just a thought.

I have CASH......

Still looking...
Along with doors for my new 75 project.
Some C5 seats.
Some front and rear bumpers.
And some black interior...but for the dash I'd like the 78-82 series.

Txs

It is possible to install the coil over with OEM upper control arms?

Not 100% sure I can answer that.
The upper connection is where the shock connects.
I'd check with QA1 and ask that question.
That is whose setup I am using.
But I always planned on going aftermarket and beefing up the front end.
Plus I can get 6% camber that way.
Stock a-arms I cannot.

Thanks Big E.....

No luck so far either.
May end up buying new from Van Steel....they do give us a discount.

Good luck with your project.
My body is off the frame so now there is no excuse not to get to work...lol

Take care
Dennis
