|cobalt327||Before doing the front end I would start w/getting the rear end sprung right (looks way too low to me), especially before doing the front end alignment, etc. because the front end geometry will change when the rear ride height comes up to where it should be.|

Front or rear steer is the first thing you look for. What is yours?

I have the same Question for my 52 Chevy P-up
I have the same question , as I'm trying to figure out exactly what's under my 52 Chevy long bed Pick-up ?? I need to raise it little and I'm not sure what I"m working with , I think it's a late 70's sub frame out of a 78-79 Trans AM , Any tell tale markings or numbers to look fort ? Larry

Looks like a decent job, welds could use some cleaning up....I used a 76 Nova clip with mine...did it 20 years ago, still driving it.....I didnt cut off the rear rails as most do these days.....I figured it gives better support and it leaves the trans cross member where it should be..

|stmotorsports||hey cobalt where would one go about gaining access to diagrams like that? I have a couple clips I'm considering and would love to be able to compare specs easily like this|

|jmsaunders||Thanks guys. And Cobalt I really appreciate the pics you added. I'm saving them so if I do another build I'll be able to do measurements when the seller doesn't know what the front clip if from.|

75-79 Nova Subframe
I picked up a 'parts' truck to help me build my 54. Got it home and really liked the subframe job that was done on it. However, the seller was unsure what it came from (was done before he owned). I'm thinking its a 75-79 Nova X Body because its "front steer", the box sits ahead of the crossmember, has disc brakes and the tie rods are in front of the spindles. Thanks in advance for your help.
