What is the difference in the 94-96 9C1/Impala ss/Civi frames? I have a 94 nice CIVI frame and a 96 9C1 body, what am i getting into using the 94 frame, i plan to use as much 96 equipment as i can, brake ABS and such.

As far as I know the only difference frame wise is for the Fleetwood which is stretched 6 inches and the wagons which are boxed and use a different gas tank. For sedans the frames should be exactly the same between the models and years your looking at.

No, I'm pretty sure the 9C1 frame is thicker in some spots or boxed differently. I'm not exactly sure the differences - I remember the discussion on ISSF a few years ago though.

I am only aware of the changes made for the 94 year in which the frame was altered for the lower ac compressor, but Fisher might be on to something, but I am not sure myself about the stiffer frame in the 9c1.

I have done a bit of research on this. From what I have read you should be perfectly interchangeable, however the 9C1 frame is a little thicker steel...I believe .10 versus .15 thickness if that sounds right...

I could be off, but I seem to recall something like that.

That was my thoughts, but keep in mind that the SS had the civilian frame too, from what I read, and people surely beat the bag out of those too...

I was under the impression that the 9c1/SS frame was HD.

The 9C1 frames are supposed to be thicker, but the real stiffness comes from the additional body bushings in the front. The civi cars and WX3 didn't use the front 2 (3) sets of body-to-frame bushings. Only the 9C1s and wagons got them. All B-body sedan frames are interchangable... Caprice civi sedan, 9C1, B4U, WX3, Roadmaster sedan.
