If you dont know anything about them why answer??

A camaro and nova front clip are identical geometry. the nova clip is lighter though as it uses smaller rails from the lower a arm mount on back..

a camaro is 108 wheelbase
a nova is 111.5

both have a 61.5 front track width
a camaros rear track is the same as the front

a nova is only 60.5 track in back oem.

a camaro has the leafs mounted parallel
a nova has the leafs 2.5" closer together in the front.
If you can run a camaro run a camaro.

thaks john... that's the answers I was looking for... I thought they had the same geometry... any significant difference in weight? I'll proly go with the camaro for the WB and the fact that there are plastic noses for it...

I was also led to understand that the 2wd S10 trucks have the same geometry... anyone know? I've got an 2wd S10 Blazer that could circumvent a Camaro rule but have a 101" WB

I was talking about a 3rd gen Camaro not a 60's or 70's Camaro.

Ive ran both and I preffered the Nova, like the looks of the car and the front end wasnt as long. Eddie
