Does anyone know if the 69-74 Nova front suspension/steering stuff will fit 75-79 Novas? (ie upper/lower a arms, tie rods/ends, steering linkage, etc). Also, I was told the 70-81 camaro stuff will fit my Nova. Is that true? Thanks!

I dont beleive they will work because the 69-74 is rear steer and the 75 and up is front steer..

pckel is correct, the early model nova is rear-steer and the suspension wont work. the a-arms from the camaro are the same as the 75-79 nova. the spindles are different and i think the tie rods are the same but different drag-link
racer17j, how'd that camaro stub work? i just put one under my nova for the up coming year

the only thing bad about those year models is they are rear steer. so nothing will change over put a camaro stub under it they are stronger

those are for rear steer novas, 68-74, and they are used to widen mods usually...


they are very hard to find.
