Does it drive good? Does it vibrate? Are both upper and both lower control arms connected to the housing??? It is supposed to point down somewhat,like 4-6 degrees....what I am trying to say is,,,I guess we need a little more info,,,,and no,the driveshaft does not cause this...

thanks for your info. It does vibrate between 30 and 40 mph and somtimes at hi speed. My buddys 396 ss dosent have the same problem, but the upper control arms are 10 inches bolt to bolt, same as mine. my bushings are good, uni is good, it has a strong rear end.

Could you have a set of earily upper contol arms? I know there is a difference on the uppers 65-67 and 68-72 but I don't know which are longer and which are lower. Sorry! Somebody jump in here!
