I have a Wright 6888 socket That I originally purchased for a 73 Barracuda I had at the time, it fits my 69 Polara perfectly.
It measures about 1-59/64
I wonder if they used a larger socket on the later cars.
The socket I had for my C-bodies grew legs and walked off some years ago, so I can't measure it. I keep thinking it wasn't the same one as the B-Body but that socket also walked off at the same time. It's a long story... All I have now is a couple early A body sockets.
My friend Jerry is a B-Body man. His B-Body socket is 1.925", which is the same as 1 59/64. That is also the measurement for the Moog K772 upper ball joints I bought and for the original upper ball joints on the car. I think B-Body and C-body upper ball joint sockets are the same at least through 1971. Thanks Gerald & Alan!My sympathies to you. If Mopar adopted a larger upper ball joint for the C bodies, it was later, with the Formals I reckon. The fusies still used the 1 59/64 size.... Didn't the Formals also get a larger rear end, like, 9.25"?
