the front suspension parts should be the same as lesabre and impala. At least I think so.Not sure of the years that interchange.
I would think a parts guy at napa may be able to tell you. Good gosh the springs and bushings and ball joints should be the same.It is a B body car.

Look on Rock Auto's site, click on the highlighted Part# & it'll show what other years & models the parts will fit. Advance Auto's site used to show the same, may still, it's slow as Molasses tho'.
Springs fit up to 88 Caprice B-Body.
Lower Bushings up to 72 A & B-Bodies.
Upper Bushings have 2 designs, have to check.
Tie Rods up to 70.
Didn't see any Ball Joints listed.
