Are the spindles and a-frames the same on a '76 firebird and a '79 firebird? My race car is a '79 and someone gave me a '76. Are the suspension parts the same?

On Camaros they changed to a lighter casting in 77 than a larger outer wheel bearing in 79. So... I'd check the outer bearing size.
Both used the same size balljoints so you can always swap the spindle and hub/rotor as a set (although the 76 and earlier spindles are heavier).
