Hay homies,
Just trying to see if anyone of you know if the G-body Frames are all the some cause I have 2 fully strapped and was see'n if I could use one of them for this 80' 2-door Malibu?
One of the frames is from a (84' Regal.) an the other is from a (86' El Camino.)
All help would be good help thanks! :cool:

I had spoke to a few hydraulic shops and they told me that Malibu frames are a few inches shorter than a g-body so they can't be swapped.

You can use a g-body frame on a cutty, regal, or monte, but elco frames are in a class of their own.

Is it longer In the Front or is the whole frame longer cause I was told that the Cutlass, Regal, Monte, ext. Are longer in the front of the Frame, (The a-arms to the bumper), But I didn't know if that was the same as for the Elco to ?
