    So, what year Suburban do you have now, and which way do you want to go with the front clip swap? The 80s bodystyle of Suburban went from 1973-1991.

    i have a 1991..clips in perfect shape was hoping to go old old school mid 60's or such.The clip swaps i have helped others with.As soon as i can get out of the collar i am going to measure a few things,like i said i have a torch a welder and runs shops,just hoping to find someone else who may have done it prior.

    For bolt on 73 will be the oldest, I saw a magazine article a while back where someone had a 63 front clip on a mid 80's blazer, didnt look real good the article stated they had a couple hundred hours in body work to make everything fit.
    There was a company that was doing mid 60's front clips for square body chevys, dont remember their name, you could probably find something with a google search.
