The 68-74 Nova is rear-steer (steering linkage behind the wheel centerline. The 75-79 Nova is front-steer. No, you can't just swap the spindles side-for-side. Compounding this problem the 75-79 cars use ball joints with different stud taper. It is not safe to put the later spindles on the early ball joints.
