Interesting question. An attempt was made to get a set to work on the bonneville, so a former member (working with me offline 2 years ago) fabbed a set. He very quickly cracked a control arm and had to have it welded up.

The stress has to go somewhere else. Now you see why I'm searching for polyurethane control arm bushings.

They may be available already. I've found that GM has been using the bushings for the 92-99 since alot longer ago in RWD applications. I have more information to verify before ordering. The same may be true for the 2k'*. Although you don't have the wear problem my 93 has today.
