Fits with headers

Made them work with pacesetter clones. Only had to knock off one tab on the rad shroud.

Shorter dog bones

Good investment, requires slight tweaking to passenger side on a 2002 Monte Carlo 3.8. It hits the aluminum mounting bracket on engine.

They work as they should... they are easy to instal, it took me maybe 15 minutes.. I recommend using a silicone grease on the bushing and bolt where it goes through the center of the bushings .. makes life easier all the way around for assembly and future maintenance... also I did these cheaper dog bones from ZZP because I already had poly bushings from them for the dog bones and the front rad support. If I knew a head of time I was going to do the build I did or any other performance build for this car I would recommend and have got ZZ PERFORMANCE shorter aluminum upgrade. Better all the way around..

Work Great

These work well to align the axles better, and they improve oil pickup in the 3800. The transmission shifts are not as noticeable, probably due to the better aligned axles. However, they're a pain to put on. I got them on by myself, though. I like how ZZP offers these black stamped steel ones as an alternative to the billet dog bones. They maintain the stock look of my engine bay, which is what I wanted. I highly recommend these shorter dog bones for the 3800.
