For our cars they offer the aluminum pucks to replace the 4 rubber ones that are sandwich in between the k member and the frame...they also offer a package called the rear isolation delete kit...which removes the rubber that is sandwiched in between the leaf spring...I got both of those kits for my car because I was tired of the swaying boat ride on the freeway...can't wait to drive it again I have the rear done and can't wait to do the front...they offer poly bushing sets and more...

[FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]"Amazing! Since this setup ties the frame 'prongs' (longitudinal's) together, instead of allowing them to virtually flap in the breeze, the entire car feels - and IS - much more rigid. Now the K-member can do what it was originally designed to do - cross-brace the entire front end of the car. Not only is handling markedly better, road feel and wander incredibly improved, even squeaks and rattles are way down. Now it feels like a well set-up A-body sedan on steroids. Highly recommended. And, if you can believe this, this setup works even better on F, J, and M-bodies. If you've got one of those creatures, be it an Aspen R/T, Mirada CMX, or Dippy cop car, etc., don't even think about tackling the twisties without one of Firm Feel's setups."[/FONT] [FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]Aluminum Sub frame Isolators, for F.M.J.

I got their rear leaf spring hangers for use with E-body XHD springs.Vey pleased with results, and the guys at Firm Feel were very helpful on the phone.

They do have some great parts. I plan on a few things for my B Body and looking at stuff for my Early A. I hope to find a Aspen 2 Dr. after I move. I had one right out of the Army with a 318 4 speed OD

I like the idea that they've done the K-frame isolators. No more scouring the junk yards looking for cast iron ones.

Eric, you mentioned in another thread about the boat ride and trying to eliminate it.

When the old rubbers get like the ones on yours, it gets even worse.

The new front hangers are set up to take your standard E body springs though you could probably use your super stock ones.

where does your shock bolt to?

If you look at the pick in post #10, the shock bolts to the upper plate thats between the axle housing and the leaf spring. The shock has a stud as the bottom point of attachment and eyelet at the top. Post #1 has an exploded view diagram of this.
