Hey guys,

So as I'm looking at many different sites for parts and stuff, I have been noticing people refer to our years of cars as B-Body, or C-Body. Wikipedia is useless because every one has different, conflicting information.

the 1957-1959 Savoy, Belv, Fury is officially what? C-Body?

Thanks

It's not a stupid question.  They were just cars back then. The dodge was 4'' longer, the Imperial even longer with it's own chassis.  The Plymouth is on a 118'' wheelbase chassis.  The wagon: 122''. So be it Savoy, Plaza, Belvedere, or Fury they are all about the same car.  Now we mostly know 'B' body axles in the rear fit the best '65-'67 or so.  'E' body (Cudas) axles will work too. Marc.

Oh okay.. so the whole a, b, c body classifications are for unibody cars only? The full body on frame cars are just cars, or should have the new classification of OG body haha.

Okay so, in that case. I was looking at a disc brake conversion kit from Summit Racing (made by SSBC Part Number: SSB-A154-4) that says its for 1958 Plymouth but it says "C-Body kit"

The testimonials aren't very helpful about fit for my car, does anyone have experience with these and if they fit 1958 plymouth?

http://ssbrakes.com/i-10092992-1957-1962mopar-front-4-piston-power-disc-brake-conversion-kit-a154-4.html  Yes, it sounds like a 'typo' since the bodies changed in 1960 to unibody. I suppose the suspension was unchanged and used the same control arms and ball joints etc.  A lot of people use 'F','J','M' (mid 70's to 80's  Dodge Diplomat, Chrysler LeBaron, Plymouth Gran Fury, Chrysler New Yorker Dodge Aspen, might be others), body front spindles with the larger brake discs/brackets.  9-3/4'' I believe.  A charger/roadrunner Master,(1'',1-1/32'') An 'A' body hemi style booster to raise it above the wide block valve covers, solid billet rod end to drag link adjusting sleeves/coupler (trimmed a bit for full swing.) The lower control arm strut bars will need to be clipped at a 45 degree angle for the spindles to swing. Go to Face book and Fury Jim Rawa has pictures under "1957-62 disc brake conversion" or "57-62...Marc.

Was it you? Here? Oh man! I can hardly keep track anymore lol but have you looked into Kanter for parts? I know they seem pricey, but least they have the stuff we need! Smile

You can also check out: http://www.aajbrakes.com/ or go to FB and look up Fury Jim Rawa. Jim also has a good conversion he designed himself using all Mopar parts. Good luck choosing.
