Both the front and rear torsion bar suspensions are similar to the ’66-’78 Olds Tornado design and, in fact, used the exact same CV axles and many other suspension parts. Likewise, the front and rear 11-inch disc brakes are off-the-shelf Toronado pieces. The service manual for the XR311 even refers you to the ’71 Toronado service manual for brake repairs.
