Thanks ...at least my mind is more at ease when I order parts. Like I said it was probably a moot point but I had to ask. Thanks again... Ron

ericnova72 I'm going to say Camaro/FireBird. I don't think it is '75-up Nova as the frame ends are not correct, the Nova has different ends because it has bumper shock absorber units.

Really doesn't matter though, the front steer F-body and X-body subframes use all the same parts as far as bushings, shocks, spindles, brakes, balljoints, steering parts, etc. About the only difference is spring rates and the diameter of the front sway bar, Camaro/Firebird is typically stiffer sprung and larger diameter bar, unless your subframe came out from under an SS Nova.

Nova is only rear steer from 1968-1974. 1975-1979 Nova are front steer, and virtually identical to the 1975-81 Camaro...about the only difference is the bumper mounting provision on the end of the frame horns.
Make sure you take pictures of that area too.

RWENUTS Nova was front steer starting in 1975.
Pics will clear it up.

clip identifcation

This may be a moot point but I bought a chevy (?) clip for a 55 s1 chevy pickup winter project . The fella I bought it from couldn't remember what it came out of . Thought maybe a 75 - 80 camaro maybe ??? Took the part numbers to a chevy garage but they couldn't help. The hub to hub measures 60.25 which points to a Chevy II or nova. Steering is 2.25 lock to lock. Is there any way I can identify this clip or does it really matter. My peace of mind and parts ordering seems to be the biggest hurdle. Any suggestions ? Thanks
