I have a 1994 Buick Regal GS 2dr and replaced the trailing arms a couple years ago. At the time, only the U-Shaped ones were available. Does anyone know if there is a heavier duty solid round trailing arm for the 94 GS? Thank you!

The u shaped arms are oem. You can fit Gen 2 trailing arms and they are adjustable. Lateral arms are not a direct swap and need to have their length adjusted. Lots of info on this in the search.

Close, Gen 2 trailing arms are a ditect swap but are not adjustable and are typically square tubing. Second Gen lats are typically modified, the long one that's adjustable will fit a first gen but the other is the wrong length. GOT2BGM can modify a set of the adjustable ones to shorten them and coupled with an unmodified set you have fully adjustable lats.

Any way I'd be able to get a hold of a fully adjustable set? :)

Pm GOT2BGM and ask. If you look at the coilover thread I started there's lats and trailing arms on the right side.

I did the rear coilover conversion and I run unmodified gen 2 lateral links. They widen the rear stance about an inch, but you can't use unmodified ones if you still have a monoleaf

I'm doing the coilover conversion too but I want as much adjustment from everything as I can get.
