    Is there any codes, dates or stamps on the subframe on the C-body? And where can I find those stamps or marks?

    The B-/E-body k-member has numbers, so it seames logical that also the c-bodys subframe would have something similar, for comparison see:

    I believe they do, but I can't tell you where.

    They had a 3 digit code (which was probably the last 3 digits of the part number) painted on the right front frame horn. I'll see if I can find a photo later this evening if someone else doesn't beat me to it.

    Yes

    As Bigmoparjeff posted, there is often the last 3 digits of the PN on or near the bumper bracket area. For Fuselage area cars, (to my knowledge) all V8 stub-frame assemblies are the same, EXCEPT for a car with an front sway bar, and possibly some fleet applications.

    And yes, there is a date code similar but not the same as A,B, and E bodies. Y-bodies have them too.
