Just buy the inserts and drill yours. Very easy. And cheap.

Ours inserts are the same as the later years Caprice. Only difference is that ours uses standard thread and the Caprice inserts are metric thread.

Limey should have the part number handy.

Absolutely. And if you dont want to remove the arms from the car, put a jack under the lower shock mount, take out your lower shock bolt, and lower the rear and you should have enough access to drill the holes.
