    One problem I’ve only noticed that one of my body mounts is worn out and that’s the drivers side front in the whee well. I have already all the drive train installed now. Is it still possible to fit body mounts as I may replace the whole lot ???

    Do one side at a time. I learned the hard way on a four door 57 Chevy. It took me nearly a year jockeying back and fourth with shim packs to get that rascal to sit level and have all four doors actually fit in their openings. I had no idea how flexible those cars are when the body is separated from the frame.

    Upper "A" arm bushings. They can be replaced at home if you have the right tools. Usually that requires having a large press you can use.

    Are the 73 and 72 mounts in the same locations and of same configuration? I ordered all the parts Huevos gave in his post, but my 73 had 5/8 bolts for the radiator support, not 7/16. Hoping everything still works out.
