Hey guys so I picked up a 1998 riv a few months ago and now that winters around to corner it’s in the garage for the season and I can start tearing into it. Plans are fender well cai, modular pulley setup, colder plugs and tstat. The cars from Nevada but saw a couple up winters and the “rear suspension cross member” as GM calls it, is rotted out. I’ve heard you can swap in the updated rear subframe out of a Buick Lucerne. I’m just wondering if it bolts right in or if I’m going to have to do some fab work. It’s hard to find a parts car I can pull the whole rear suspension setup out of but not impossible. Just looking for any info here: thanks and heres a pic of the beige beauty.

...if I remember right, all you do is just get the lateral arms along with the Lucerne subframe, the mount points for those arms differ on the later subframe. If you get the rear control arms as well, they have replaceable bushings, you can press new ones in then sling the whole set into place.

You know what - I really hope "retirement gold" makes a comeback. Dissing that color because it tended to be old people who bought it - was stupid.
