Lakewood Bolt On Ladder Bars 1973-1977 A Bodies

Post by Jeff-45 on Sat Nov 26, 2016 11:03 am

Looking to sell the set of Lakewood Bolt On Ladder Bars that were on my 1974 Cutlass.
Lakewood no longer manufactures the bolt on ladder bars for 73-77 A bodies. They still manufacture the slapper bars.
They are bolt on no welding required. You will need to drill two holes in the frame to mount the front bracket. It also bolts to the front trailing arm bolt/nut/bushing.

I'm changing to adjustable upper and lower control arms.

I have pics that I can send to those interested.
They are black, powderocated with all of the mounting hardware etc.

Lakewood has the instructions for the 68-72 A Bodies, Same procedure for installation.

Unless they changed their design, the 73-77 should bolt to the lower shock bolt in the rear. Unlike 68-72 which bolt to the rear most lower control arm bolt. Directions should be.different.
Post up a pic.if.you can.

If I wasn't going a different direction, I'd be interested in them. I've always loved the way they look and how well they performed. Back in the day, the early to mid 70's, these were the way to go for anyone that had a coil spring GM car. How much you asking for them Jeff?

The lower control arms are still used. Makes the car stiffer and hooks better.

325/50/15. Had to roll the wheel well lip a little. Pained me to do, but upgrading from the 350 olds to the 455 (.060 over), I needed more traction.

The Chevelle's look good. My Dad had a 75 Malibu, picked up from a little old lady with 10K on the odometer.
