Barring any differences in sway bars your '81 is basically the same car as the '74 on the bottom side. The system will bolt up no problems other then doing some mods to plug it into the headers on your 305...

Did you read the last part of my post?

Your pipes will need some tweaking to fit up to the headers. Whether the headers are on a Pontiac or a Chevy makes no difference. Headers on either motor would require re-working the head pipes to fit up.
