rear

That rear will bolt into your car, but it's wider then a stock nova rear. I think it's 3/4" per side.. Measure your rear backing plate to backing plate, then check the one you are going to buy for a exact size....

Been thru this one a time or two.

NO it will not directly bolt in with out moving the spring perch mounts. Trying to make it work will cause the springs to be twisted at an unacceptable angle. It will bind the shackles and break things. Then the wider axle length will make the tires stick out 3/4 to 1 inch on each side.

The NOVA's, 68 and newer models, have the EXACT spring perch and axle lengths as the 67 to 69 camaros ONLY.

'68-'79 Nova & '67-'69 Camaro rear ends measure 60-1/4" between the axle flanges. '70-up Camaro rears are wider. Nova rear measurements are here: http://novaresource.org/axle.htm
