I think there is 16 sets available. another piece of Cadillac racing history, once there gone they are gone for good.

Based on my reading of the service manual this looks like something I would have a shop install. Under the heading of "waiting for the other shoe to fall" - are there any other pieces of GM racing history coming through the pipeline that should be installed at the same time?

Unfortunately this looks like the last of it.

Luke,

I got the racing sway bars, so I might as well go for these also. Put me down for a pair. By the way, what is the "new rear strut brace"?

Luke,

Two upper control arms, one strut brace. (Quick, before the stock market tanks.)

Easy install on these, should by a DIY for most, will not affect alignment. Tool access to both bolt head and nut is the most frustrating part. We are not allowed to use these in our Stock class, wish we were. I have replaced these stock ones before becaue over ambitious drivers like to use my left rear quarter as brakes at times.

Is the only difference the higher durometer bushings?

Any geometry changes? Different metal composition?

Luke, yes one of those (rear strut brace) too.

GM racing told me its just the bushings. I should have a set in the next couple of days so if I find different I will post it.

Okay, I have my upper contol arms in hand (Thanks Luke) and I am trying to decide whether to install them myself. Did you use the GM special tool J43631 (ball joint separator)? If so, where do I get one? If not, what do I use? Thanks.
