Nope, that will not work, a 1988 Camaro is a unibody with McPherson strut front suspension and not conclusive for swaps.

You need a 70-81 Camaro sub frame.

Do some searches here and there are some great threads on this subject. New Interiors and Shine have posted some good pics. On sub frame swaps you will also see some bickering among members as some (me) don't agree with 99% of the frame swap sub frame swap ideas. But on your truck, it's wide enough and these sub frame swaps work great.

You need to do some searches here, there are TONS of threads on the subject.

Here is one you need to be a part of. 55 to 59 chevy truck owners

I know of no manuals or anything like that personally.
