This link should give you the Info you want.>> http://www.442.com/oldsfaq/ofstr.htm...Considerations
The G-body boxes are the a good fit, internal Steering Stops are the closest to the early A & X bodies. Different Rag Joint is needed & Hose Fittings.

You're Chip,
My Post above should've read, The G-body boxes are a good fit. The internal Steering Stops are the closest etc..
Not sure how I buggered that up. I need to Proofread more often.
