I would imagine that the structure of the Nova would be strong enough to support the M11 front end....However, if you plan on removing the spring wells for more engine room, I would be looking into strengthening it.

OK, heres the thing...Thought you were talking about an aftermarket M11 crossmember......Using an original out of a car will be a ton of work.

I titally agree with Poncho, and by the time you get done it you will probably end up having to by and make a crossmember for the Nova anyway,

In the other hand provided they are in good shape $100 for upper and lower control arms, spindles, brake strut arms and rack (even as a core) is not a bad price and a lot cheaper than buying aftermarket.
