The biggest problem will be the control arms. The G-body and A-body axles have different angles on the arms, so the attach points are different. You can force the axle and suspension arms into place, but the suspension will bind. Aftermarket arms with metal spherical rod ends solve the binding problem. Then you only have to deal with the fact that the G-body axle is about 3" narrower than the A-body and the fact that an original 78 Monte axle is the POS 7.5" ring gear that will frag as soon as you put any power to it.
