Need the truth...firebirds and camaro's

So I have a 76 firebird formula that I'm restoring, its my first resto project. I can not find so many parts for it and its really frustrating. I have been told that the parts are interchangeable between camaro's and firebirds. I need to know if this is really true before I drop a lot of cash on camaro parts.

Parts I'm looking at:

Radiator core support
Lower control arm bolts
Spindles
Bolts for body panels, front fender wells

Thanks in advance for your input.

You will find that the body panels are a little different. The front inner fenders are a little different because the firebird had fifteen inch wheels and the camaro had frourteen. The wheel wells are a little bit bigger on the firebird. Radiator support is different because the camaro used a different hood and front cowling.

The things that I know for sure are the same are the front subframe and unless you are dealing with a trans am all the suspension parts are the same, fire wall, floor boards and all inner structure panels the same, the roof is the same and all of the glass is the same.

Go ahead and build it. Firebirds are popular and there is just as many after market parts for them as there is camaros.
