Compatibility-Hotchkis and US car tool? - 06/11/21 03:19 AM

Compatibility E body, Hotchkis upper control arm and US Car Tool inner fender stiffining kit? I have called both Hotchkis and US Car Tool and they did not have a opinion weather they are compatible or some cutting and mods would be nessasary. Does any Moparts members have this combination of parts. Can you comment on install?

Thanks,

AL

I have no first hand install knowledge of ethier product, but have seen them both close up, not installed.

I can't see any conflict between the two if we are talking about the same thing.

Not getting a definite answer from both manufacturers to your question does not surprise me in today's times. twocents bump

There shouldn't be a problem but the installer is always the one who has to figure out if two parts from different vendors are going to fit. Nobody in the aftermarket has enough time or money to test fit their parts with everyone else's parts. I test fit my stuff with a few of the most popular parts but it would be impossible to test everything with everything.
