Not a standard swap. You'd be better off finding the 7.5" posi that will fit the 3rd Gen G-Body. That rear end will likely be too wide, and I don't think your shock mounts or shackle mounts will line up. I could be way off, but I believe that you'd be better off finding a stock style replacement. On the other hand if you want a bullet proof rear end, I know that there's a company that makes a 9" that will slide right into your G-Body, although the name of the company escapes me as of now. Hope this helps.

There's always a small advertisement in the back of HotRod magazine for them I believe. If you have one, take a look in the black & white section, and I'm sure you'll see it. I just don't have one near me at the time.

If you did not know:



the Camaro diff uses leaf springs. The Monte uses coil springs and control arms to mount the rear diff.

And the Camaro axle IS wider from wheel mounting surface to wheel mounting surface, than the G-body axle.

You CAN find a G-body direct fit from Buick Grand National's and a couple other scarce GM models BUT they are very pricey, around $800 for an empty housing.

Currie, Moser, and a couple others make a 9-inch ford housing that will directly bolt in, but they are around $1600 and up empty. One of those axle manufacturers will also make up a GM 12-bolt housing that will directly swap in for around the same cash layout.
