Yup..

That's when they changed.. 78. The late style arms were used from 78 all the way through 89 although the torsion tube is different for the 89 model to comensate for the G50 5spd.

The mount on the torsion tube corrects for the geomentry of the bigger arms etc.. You can upgrade the earlier cars to the bigger/later control arms. It's merely having the correct tabs fabricated, located properly and welding them on the tube. There are a couple of good race shops around the country that understand the upgrade and can properly set-it up.
