Suspension kits question

Looking to buy a suspension kit to replace bushings, struts, etc. (not control arms) for my 1953 pontiac project. I'm not exactly sure the precise year the original suspension is out of. I'm assuming it was from a early 80's camaro because the original engine was. Does anybody know if these kits are pretty universal? The ones I've found usually say 69 camaro but look like what I need.

If it is the car in your photo journal it looks like a 70 - 81 Camaro. The bushings are not universal.


Later, mikey

70-81 tie rods

Thank you. Your right the bushings are not universal or the tie rods. I think mine is a later model so 74-81, but I'm not sure. I think I'll just clean up what I got and powder coat them and replace the bushings.
