    70 Newport Rear springs

    I am swapping out my rear springs for new ones myself. Speaking with Springs N Things vendor to secure new pieces (I think some here might have used them?). I am having problems getting the correct/proper parts as SNT says the brackets holding the springs are not "scalloped". Whaaa? Anybody else...

    Front drum brake wheel studs

    Have a couple that snapped on me. Classic Industries has them for B bodies w/ 10" drums but not for C's (I have 11" drums -- does dia size matter just to replace 3 studs?). Any other sources?

    70" fuselage c body upper/lower control arms

    Anyone know where refurbished control arms (upper/lower) for 70' Newport can be found? Existing bushings are total crapola; thought it might be easier to just swap out old arms for pieces with refurbished or good bushings already installed. New bushings are dime-a-dozen and easy to find, but...
