Moving to suspension....

I am wondering if a Camaro clip might be a bit wide for the Desoto.....

Not really sure about the Desoto, but I have a 37 Cadillac Coupe and it has an 81 Camaro subframe. Check out my project journal and there are some pictures.

Just measure a lot
Just measure a lot to see that the clip is on center and square in the chassis. the old measure 3-4 times check twice weld once deal..And not to be in a rush..have it all clamped up and jigged before you to make nice joints things like that..

Can't comment on whether or not that clip fits that car..not there with my trusty tape measure..
