I read an article about different cars that were donors for chevelles. They listed different cars that would simply bolt onto chevelles especially disc brakes,sway bars,and spindles. Anybody know of donor cars that would convert there brakes,swaybars,etc over to a 68 camaro with ease. Not many bone yards around here with 67-69 camaros sitting in them. The article was in CHEVY HIGH PERFORMANCE did anyone see an issue relating to f bodies? Thanks in advance!

the 69-74 nova uses the same subframe, suspension, etc as the 67-69 camaros. the following is a list of disc brake donor cars courtesy of davidpozzi, check out his website as well it is very informative.

DISC BRAKES THAT WILL FIT FIRST GEN CAMAROS
You can use the spindle, caliper, bracket, or rotor from:
Apollo 73-74
Buick Special 69-72
Camaro 69
Chevelle 69-72
Firebird 69
Grand Prix 69
Grand Prix 70-72
Monte Carlo 70-72
Nova 69-74
Olds F85 69-72
Omega 73-74
Sprint gmc /El Camino 71-72
Tempest 69-72
Ventura II 71-74
They must be disc brake equipped of course. I believe discs became standard in 1970.
Some of the cars listed have the caliper forward of the spindle. You must swap side for side placing the Caliper to the rear of the spindle on the Camaro.And use your Camaro steering arms.
This is a very complete list.
I have more info on my web page below.

For what it's worth. I have a 68 and bought a 74 Nova for parts, I installed the power disk brakes, the multi leaf springs and the rear end into the Camaro and everything fit perfect.
