Front end fastener kit?

Post by The Dude on Thu Jun 10, 2010 2:49 pm

Got the 76 almost ready to button up & really don't want to reuse the old rusty bolts that I pulled (or cut) off. Not to anyone's surprise, I found all kinds of 64-67 & 68-72 kits out there but nothing for us. Is there a kit for 73-77 A-Bodies or even a decent solution? I think I can make one of the older kits work, but not sure which to go with & why there is even a difference. If I have to reuse the old bolts I can for the most part, but a couple I ended up just cutting off because I was tired of fighting them. Not really wanting to use hardware store bolts. I want my car to look decent, not half-A$$.

On a side note, I did find some polyurethane radiator support bushings for less than $20. Very Happy

rago i dont have a solution about the bolts other than to use the ones that you can use and later on down the road if you take them off a parts car/junkyard car then you will have the origional bolts, but where in the world did you find those radiator support bushings??? your talking about the radiator core right"?

Yeah x2 on the support bushings. Mine are pretty shot, but work well enough for now. Would love to replace them. Do tell...

Seriously? I found a few different sets in just minutes of looking. Summit racing has the Prothane Brand & it says they fit our cars. http://www.summitracing.com/parts/PTP-7-1711/ <<<<$17.99!!!

The rubber ones can be picked up just about anywhere.

I still have most of the original bolts other than everything around the battery tray. I just want some fresh ones. Call me picky, call me over cautious.... I just want new ones I guess. The kits for earlier models are only $40, so I might just buy one & try it out.

Here's some Goodmark core support bushings if that's what you guys are talking about.

Of course, you could just order a polyurethane body mount kit & they usually come included.....

LoL, I think I deserve street cred or something for finding them parts. Very Happy J/K

77, I'm gonna be straight up & honest with you. I always pull the AC out of my rides. Usually the first thing I do because if it's too hot to drive my fun cars I can just hop in the convertible or drive one of the wife's cars..... Sorry I don't know much about that subject.

I'll check into the AC thing, but start up a new thread & someone might catch it. Try to get pics of the bracket also (I still have mine).

The street cred button is located on the right side... +/- buttons.
