You can make anything work, but it's going to take a lot of work to get the Chevy II rear end to fit your El Camino. You will have to fabricate brackets for the upper and lower controll arms and add spring perches and get all of the geometry right. No easy job for the average person. The only differentials that will fit the El Camino rear end are 26 spline 7.5 differentials. You will have to know what gear ratio you have so you can get the right series for that gear ratio. Working on rear ends is a lot different tha building an engine.
