73 nova with IRS?

i have a 73 nova thats been recently tubbed out, 17x11's out back. i bought the detroit speed minitubbing kit. later on down the road i would like to go with an IRS setup when i have the money. has anyone seen an IRS incorporated in a unibody car? i would like to see how its done or if anyone makes a kit for unibodies or maybe something off a corvette would work. any help would be appreciated, thanks.

Why would you not put a 4 link in it?

thats a good question, is a 4 link setup better than an IRS? whats are the differences? also, do they make kits for novas? you can see im still learning about all this.

Well....the way I look at it is, the car is already tubbed for the wide tires, which suggests that its set up for drag racing. A 4 link is the way to go for that....with all the adjust ability of it. What, if anything is in the car now for rear suspension?

well i minitubbed it for traction yes, but i really would like the car setup as a g-machine. road handling mainly, but able to get off the line without wheel hop and loss of traction. right now the "stock" rear end was shortened, GM 8.5 10bolt eaton posi. heres the kit i bought.
