Me and my wife have a 69 camaro.I replaced the stock 8.2 rear end with a 8.5 out of a 74 nova with 373 posi. It fit fine.The first thing you need to check is the width from backing plate to backing plate.You might have to change the spring perches.What size rear end do you have if it's smaller than a 8.2 i wouldn't mess with it, if you have a motor with horse power.A 8.5 will withstand about 500 horsepower.
