    Hey people,"newb" here...with a question.I've read of swapping 52' upper control arms with 54' uppers;would 55' uppers work also?Can't find 54's,yet I have a lead on a pair of 55's. I want to improve the handling of my 52' Super Riviera.....

    Click the "reference" button at the top of the page, and scroll down to where it says "Knee Action Shock Upgrade".

    According to Hollander, '54 - '56 should work.

    kne action schock upgrade

    The link sends you to a site that ask for money...any one have the tech they can pass down to me...it was free for a while, sort of like car pool lanes here in socal. No longer free that is..I found a 55 century front suspension and curious to how they did.
