Hey guys what platform is a 75 caprice considered? Will suspension parts from a newer caprice(Impalla SS) bolt up?

It's more or less the same!

The '95.5-up 9C1/ImpalaSS got bigger balljoints and differently machined spindles, but guess where they came from - The ('71?) '73-'76 B-body. Those years weighed ~600lbs more than the '77-up "boxy". The Impala spindle as it is called (Circle track) is from these big cars, which uses the large lower balljoints (MOOG K6141), and the big inner wheel bearings (A5), as well as the '73-'87 C10/C1500 truck discs and calipers. I'm actually goint the other way - upgrading my '77 box Caprice with the HD parts from a '76 Caprice I bought the complete front suspension of.
