I'd be asking someone on PM who is Pontiac-savvy, like Mr P-Body or Bill Creech or LATECH....

Whatever happened to the Roadmaster IFS. All you had to do was weld it in.

Thanks for the leads on Pontiac experts.

Talked with someone who has done suspension swaps on similar year Buick.
They recommended against a fronts steer ifs that uses a steer box because not enough room in the front shell. It is very tight up there.
Thought I'd give the wiki concept a try because once I remove the spring pockets there's no going back.
Thanks

I don't get it. What's the big deal with a steering box hanging out on the front of the car. Pound out a sheet metal bubble to cover it and paint it along with the rest of the car if it bothers you.

If I built it and there was a steering box hanging out the front of the car and someone said something negative about it, they might be headed for a fat lip. Geez, get a clue. Sometimes I think you guys care too much what other people think of your stuff.

LOL. I did take a look at adapting a Dodge intrepid r&p to the 95 Roadmaster ifs. This may be a back-up if I run into a snag on the wiki approach.
Thanks
