Found a guy with an old Concorde in his backyard, willing to let me do whatever. About 1.5 - 2 hours away but still worth it.

What parts could I fit on my Eagle?

Going to snag the front springs for a replacement to mine, but what else will work?

If it's a Chrysler Concorde, nothing will work. If it's an AMC Concord almost everything will work on an Eagle except for transmission, front crossmember, control arms, rear springs and probably a couble other things. If it's an 80+ the engine will work.

I have heard several times that upper control arms will lift an Eagle 2" and do technically work for a lift?

We discovered that accidentally with Max98059's SOTE when we converted to 4x4.

Now I need a pair of upper arms for mine. Lower arms are TOTALLY different. Pretty much everything in front from the upper balljoint down is different.

Concord is AMC and you might find the correct motor is there (check for the spot where the front diff pinion bracket hangs off the side of the motor)

Fenders are the same without flares. Headlights too. I like the clear signal/park lenses on the front better than the yellow ones on ours (I have ultra bright bulbs for the clear ones) Hood works. Carb should be a non-computer BBD (assuming 6 cyl) If V8, then the springs might be nice but 6 cyls will lower the Eagle. Super dangerous to pull if you haven't before. I remove the upper balljoint, then the upper control arm bolts from the frame and lastly the shock bolt.

WARNING! Do the last 2 (upper arm bolts and shock stud) from the front so the spring doesn't get you when it flies off! A chunk of rug and a loadstrap help cut down the bounce.

I really like the Concord style door locks, they are bigger than the Eagle ones but look nicer. You can tap them to fit, or just screw them on tight. Door handles and hatch hinges work, and you can also check for window vent shades.

I'm tempted to try if I get the arms but I keep remembering anything over 1.5" is asking for problems with the axle shafts. :oops:

:smh: Talking cars gets so dirty. :speedy:

The cure is to lower the front diff
