Radiator Support Bushing Kit

Post by BBMALIBU on Thu Jun 18, 2015 9:13 pm

I am looking to replace the 2 radiator support bushings (body mounts) on my 76 Malibu.  
From research, I know that the 68-72 Chevelle conv mounts are the ones to get.

Has anyone ordered/used the ones from Speedway Motors?

Ok here is another question; will replacing the core support bushings throw off any of the front end geometry?

Such as the gaps between the fenders & doors, hood and fenders, etc...?

A friend of mine, who is a body guy with 30+ years experience, said that it will.

I got the kit from summit for a 68-72 convertible. Installed just fine. Had a couple left over. And I reused my radiator support bushings because the kit is round but the ones in the kit are round. They fit in the hole, but they're not the same shape on top....

So I know I'm digging up an older thread, but I'm going to be doing this soon. I took the core support out to clean and repaint it, now I'm getting ready to install. I found these, but I found a set on ss396.com and was just wondering if any of you guys have used the others. Which ones do you think would be better?

Here are the ones I found at ss396.com

And here is what I found at summit
