anyone recognize this clip?

My project truck is getting closer to completion, as I finish up the brakes, wiring , and metal work I am getting to the point of refreshing the front suspension; this is where my difficulty lies. The front clip was installed by the P.O. a couple times back; so I couldn't get a confirmation when I purchased as to what the donor car was. If anyone recognizes the layout/design please let me know, or if measurements are needed I can get those also. The P.O. waffled between a camaro and a chevelle as to the donor, but I am not sure other than it looks nothing like the 1980 camaro I have in the garage.

I have no clue what it is from, but I can tell you for sure it is not from a Nova or Camaro. My curiosity is up as to what it is from!

The field is narrowed down some, no Camaro or Nova donor. I looked for VIN stampings but no luck there iether (on my '55 the VIN was stamped on the frame horn).

A picture of the spindle would help. If it has a cast in caliper bracket, probably 76 to 79 Nova. Two piece spindle and calioer bracket, 64 to 72 Chevelle.

Spindle pics

I have some pics of the spindle now, and even some cating numbers if that helps. The number closest to the caliper mount is probably a date code "150" underneath is LH, this was the driver's side so I am going to take a leap and decode that as Left Hand.
The longer number is 459755, it is a one piece spindle with integral caliper mounting bracket.

Those hubs look to have the wide bolt pattern. The spindles: 459756 = Right side, 1970 to 1980 G body, S-10 Blazer. 459755 is the left side, as you surmised. Also said elsewhere to be 1982 to 87 Monte Carlo.

Hope your planning on replacing those brake hoses along with all the other components, they look pretty scary!

Hej, det ar bra! (English translation of my attempt at Swedish- Hi, they are good) just kidding, yes the are quite scary. Other than the initial test drive and then off the trailer to my garage I haven't driven the truck. I was bending and flaring the brake lines for the rear last night and am working my way up front where I now have a firewall mounted power booster unit.

Positive Id

It has been a while since I posted, but wanted to update the thread with the clip ID. It is a G-body, I had a few steps to narrow down the donor vehicle:

1) I replaced the wheel bearings, they were stamped with a code LM67048 & LM603049; thanks to the Timken online catalog, I could make a list of every auto that took those inner and outer bearings.

2) measured my wheel bolt pattern and threads, 5 on 4 3/4 with metric threads.

3) Started with the idler arm, nothing difinitive, went with the center link next. Was able to get online Moog listings with meaurements, ID'd as a DS909; this fit a shorter list of vehicles, and when cross referenced with the bolt pattern of the hubs; I had prime candidates of OLd cutlass or El Camino 82-88.

4) my steel wheels where date stamped for 1984 from Canada, and the Rear end is an Oldmobile unit. Although the parts for the front end are interchangeable between an El Camino and the Olds Cutlass, I am declaring it a 84 Olds Cutlass based on the other donor parts.

Finally new suspension components and brake hoses (yes the pics showed how shot they were)
