if i recall correctly, third generation and newer camaros were the first to use a torque arm setup so you'd need to fabricate a torque arm mount on your nova rear end (which is easier said than done) or drastically change the suspension setup (like backhalving the car and running ladder bars)

thanks, looks like I'll go ahead and start thinking 9" and yes, backhalving the car seems more practical, thats what I'll do..
