:D I'm getting ready to start a Nova Project the trunk is gone (RUST) also the bottom piece behind the bumber it goes from side to side and is under the tailpeice. which needs replacing also. My real question is Im thinking on tubbing or just using a product that I just found in summit catalog it says it keeps you from having to tub it. cause it moves the shocks and then lets you install larger tires. any comments on any of my questions would be great Thanks Jeff

The shocks aren't the problem with fiting larger tires, the leaf spring is usually the limiting factor if minitubs are added. Offset spring hangers in the rear will move the springs in so they end up the same distance apart as the front hangers. Look over the unibody rails really good before you start replacing sheetmetal, the rails on this design Nova are very thin. Summit also offers replacement mandrel bent rails that are thicker than original and fully boxed, add subframe connectors and the platform should be really stout.
