I put a 57 Ford wagon 9" in a 69 Nova with no problems.

Mostly yes. The stock spring pad perches are famous for breaking loose with lots of HP and I trimed them off, put aftermarket pads on the springs, set the rear end on the pads, bolted on my wheels and tires. I then made sure the pinion angle was what I wanted (big slicks change the angle).....checked it for side to side clearance and welded the pads in place. Made a new driveshaft with larger U-joints than the chevy stuff.

I did the same thing except my 69 Camaro had new 5 leaf springs.The 57 Ford rearend just sat right down on them and the perches lined up correctly.I did have to put lowering blocks on it to bring it down some but that was a function of the new springs.

I hope everyone here knows that a 69 Nova and a 69 Camaro share the same rear end and interchangability.

My spring pads would set down the same also. I wanted Better pads, welded better and to correct the pinion angle because of the large 32" tall tires.

That dosn't sound to hard. My 69 camaro has mono leafs though, I might have to modify the mounts on the rear end. What about the axels? Does anybody sell ford 9 inch axels with chevy lug patterns?

There are many places that will redrill the pattern on axles for you. Moser comes to mind.

If you are running aftermarket wheels, most accept the Ford pattern 5 on 4.5 ------- Chevrolet is 5 on 4.75

Why do you need a Ford? Most 10 bolt and almost all 12 bolt Chevrolet rears will stand a good bit of Horsepower and abuse.

I went to the 9" because I had a lot of power (650 to 700), a 4 speed, big slicks and I wanted to be able to easily change the gear ratio without having to set up a gear in the housing every time I wanted a different gear. I can set up gears in the 12 bolts, but a 9" requires it only once.......just change the center section.
