I think your headed in the right direction. Check out the "Knowledge Base" there are some good articles regarding your question in there. You have two dimensions that you should be concerened with. That is the the distance between the spring pads, and the "flange to flange" distance. If you can do your own welding, so that you may relocated the pads, then you need be concerned with only the Flange to Flange distance. The early 68,69 Camaro should be a close fit also. Let me know if I can be of help, Good Luck. <img src="graemlins/boxing.gif" border="0" alt="[boxing]" />

The 68-74 Nova rearend fits well under virtually every Chevy car built before 1958. The spring pads must be relocated/replaced but that's pretty much the hardest part of the swap. When you get the rear-end take the driveshaft as well; on some swaps it will bolt right in with no modifications. TRY IT! YOU'LL LIKE IT!
