I need to know if the whole front end(tire to tire,radiator to fire wall)sub frame and all fit into the rails under the omega body. Friends say yes but that I might have to redrill the connecting bolt holes. Any and all help would be appreciated greatly!

I put one in a 77 pheonix a few years ago and I don't remember having to drill any holes, pretty much the same. I left the bushings out and just had enough clearence in the trans tunnel. Had it connected to the cage so hard the bolts didn't matter. hopes this helps

the camaro sub frame will not bolt up exactly to a nova body. i did this to my car this year.the front mounts on the frame need to be cut off and moved up about 3 inches. if you dont do this (which i didnt) your car will look like a banana. this is because the rear bolts up the same but the front is higher. it wont affect the geometry or anything,it just makes things a little tighter in the engine compartment because it moves the motor up compared to the body. i have to use a 2 inch air cleaner with a recessed base and my hood has to bow over the air cleaner cause i did not move the front mounts
