37 Chevy Coupe Suspension Question

I have a 37 Chevy Coupe on 79 Grand Prix suspension. I am looking for narrowed control arms. My question is what year of Chevy control arms are interchangeable with a 79 Grand Prix. I was told 69 Nova control arms will work. Is this correct? Any info will be a be help.

Thanks

Check w/Speedway Motors. They do circle track stuff, and different length A-arms are part of their shtick.

Nova lowers do work if you put the right on t he left side and the left on the right side and use washers to make up t he bushing difference and then you'll need to move the upper control arms pivot point because the nova lowes are about 1.5" longer and your springs won't work either.

The 1978-1988 G-body cars all use the same suspension. That's Malibu, Monte Carlo, El Camino, as well as Cutlass Supreme, LeMans, and Regal.
