Nothing wrong with a firebird. The Camaro and Firebird are the same except for the drivelines and the body. So all the suspension parts from a similar Camaro will swap. You can use the upper A arma from a 67-69 camaro/firebird (and 68-74 Nova).

Thumbs up

I kinda thought they where the same...
I have a great supplier for Camaro parts in my neighborhood and I was hoping to use...My friends make fun of me cause I bought this car, they know what a true fan I am to the Camaro...I think they are pissed that I picked this car up so cheap...

I got my firebird wih a ready to paint body, all interior parts, #'s matching rebuilt engine, rebuilt th350, detailed engine bay and undercarriage, and a truck full of extra parts including a triple deuce intake and carbs. I got it all for $3000 and sold some extra parts for $1000 so I basically got it all for $2000. The guy was tired working on it and just wanted to get rid of it.
