Front Clip identifaction

Hi All,
I really need some assistance in identifying the front clip on my 1949 Chevy AD. The person that built the truck has passed away and I'm the fourth owner....playing detective now. I need to change the upper control arm shaft & bushings but don't know what the clip is from. Some say it is a 70 something Camaro....others say a late 60s Nove. I don't have a clue and I know I'll need the info later when I get into the brakes too. So....I have posted some pictures on photobucket at.. http://s1064.photobucket.com/albums/.../Front%20clip/

If ya'll can shed some light on this for me it would be greatly appreciated,
Thanks,
chuck

PS....Hi Deuce....I'm the guy that bought another car years ago that the owner had passed away....the '34 Nash 4dr....I think I have bad Karma about this! grin

I believe all Camaros and Novas prior to 70 (Mid year) were rear steer. I think they are "identical". The Novas stayed rear steer. I am thinking with those single piston calipers it's a Nova being the Camaro 69 and under had a four piston caliper. I think on the 69 that is, I am pretty sure they still four piston.

Thanks all....I think I get it! I checked the Moog book and the 68-74 Nova are the same upper control arm shaft & bushing number. I think I'll order a set from PST....unless anyone has a better vendor?

If it was me and I wasn't sure, I would remove the parts, go to NAPA and get a Nova one and compare them....Beats having to ship back to some internet vendor.....but, that's just me
