I pulled the rear end out from under my 63 hardtop and started cleaning it for a freshen up. During this pull I found that my rear axle seal was leaking on the drivers side. No problem, I'll just repl ...

I'm finally getting around to finishing a front end rebuild on my 63. I'm converting all the stock rubber pieces to PST polygraphite. Does anyone know the proper torque specs for the upper and lower b ...

I've got my eye on some 16X7's as well. I've heard about too many problems with the 17X7's (which was also my perferred choice). Check out this guys' ride with 16X7's.

Good luck, ...

Hey, don't get me wrong guys, I know many of you have performed this swap and are quite happy with the results. I'm merely stating the facts, it's not a perfect swap for the 62-65 class of Fairlanes. ...

You guys with later model Fairlanes shouldn't have much of a problem with this mod. Looks great.
For the earlier model Fairlane owners, 62-65, the mod looks VERY difficult. The springs on these model ...
