If you are talking about your 85 Delta 88, the frame is exactly the same as the Caprice from 1977 to 1990. The bumper shock absorbers might be different, but the basic frame is identical. in 1991 to 1996 the frame got three changes, but still all the body mount locations are the same. The three chnages from the 77-90 to th3 91-96 are:
1. cross member mounting brackets are different (the 94-96 is best for this since the factory dual exhaust stamped cross member makes a great dual exhaust set up without having to hack/weld the tubular cross member.
2. The bolt-on frame supports at the front near the LCA pivots became weld- on - and this makes no difference to a swap
3. The engone cross-member got a big bash on the front right side to clear the AC compress wheich was moved to the lower right front of the engine.
In fact, I used a 96 9C1 frame on my 78 coupe - and it was an easy swap - and now I have a great dual exhaust and an LT1 from the 96 in it.
