I have a 65 that I'm doing a frame off restoration on. If the 65 is the same as the 66, I can send a picture.

I can also help out with a pic once I am home, after work.

By chance are you wanting to validate the L/R A-arms?

I have a couple of top-side pics here that may or may not help. http://www.impalas.net/forums/blog.php?b=17

Thanks for the help,


Yeah i'm just trying to double check a few things out, I finished the car last year and every part that went on it I double checked fitment but now i'm just trying to double check that I have the upper arms on the proper sides, I know it sounds stupid, especially from a licenced mechanic but after bringing it out from winter storage, trying to work out a couple of things.

Here's a shot from the pasenger side fender looking across the engine at the drivers a-arm, and another picture (albeit, not a great one) from underneath the front of the drivers tire.
I'm not sure either of these is depicting what you want though.
