Clip Question

New to the forum, but have been following for your really good topics and answers.

Need suggestions on which later model Chevy clip would be the best and easiest to swap into my 46 Chevy 1/2 ton to replace the stock solid front (suicide axle) and assembly.

The Nova is probably a better choice since its a bit narrower than the Camaro, however you still may need to narrow the crossmember a bit to get the track correct for a 46.

Centerline is right about the nova being narrower .The 68 to 72 nova is 60 inch's flange to flange.

The 76 to 80 camaro is 61.5 inch's flange to flange.
