I havent tried them but wonder what the advantage is, are they quieter or maybe stiffer for better handling.

Those would be a wise choice. The screw type are a PITA to assemble. They cannot be more rigid, the screw style is metal to metal. This resembles the Granada arm which I understand is interchangable. Are those urethane or rubber bushings?

Low buck, touring style, '73 Convertible "rolling restoration", 351c, 2v heads with a shave and a haircut, Performer intake, Holley 650(ish), roller rockers, screw in studs, guideplates, stainless valves, Duraspark / Motorsports MSD, T-5 conversion. 1-1/8" front, 3/4" rear swaybars KYB shocks and some home brewed subframe connectors. Future plans; JGC steering box, Cobra brakes and... paint, interior, etc.

When I die I want to die like grandpa, peacefully in my sleep... not screaming, like his passenger.

Roy, did you install the kit yet? How'd it go together?

I was working when my uncle installed them but he said they were no trouble.

Those are the Granada style uppers. I've never used them but I've heard they don't do the handling any favors...
