Question Camaro/firebird difference?

On the front spring perch, the 3, or 4 bolts that hold it in place, are they the same? I got a call from a friend doing a 69 firebird and says he has a different setup than the camaro slip nut & bolt design.
Anyone know?

67 RS 327, 4-speed, posi, done.
67 Modified, 454, TH-400, posi, under construction.
67 SS 396, 4-speed, basket case.
72 RS, sitting, partially done.
55 210 post, 2 door, 327 4-speed runs good.
55 2 door post, gasser project
69 Cadillac ElDorado
69 4x4 suburban
59 ElCamino

Some mornings, it's just not worth chewing thru the leather straps"

I doubt it unless his ride has Second Gen./NOVA front brackets under it b/c I think they are taller/lower/deeper(????), WHATEVER, like, but not like, our First Gen. cars!!

I lowered my new NOS brackets front right at 3/4" to get a SLIGHTLY better "tail-end" - stance - on my car..

Bracket, rear spring front eye-
Firebird 67-69 3892752 RH 3892751 LH
Camaro 67-69 3892752 RH 3892751 LH
The brackets are the same. The bolts probably are too. I ordered bracket bolts for my bird which i never used. They looked like the originals. I'm pretty sure they sell the same ones for the camaro from classic industries. They are bolts with the clip nuts like used for body parts.

If I didn't learn it from my my mentors, I learned it as a result.

That's what I thought. I'll give him a call. He says, "the nut has 4 tabs on it and it sits inside something". I told him it is the nut that broke off the clip but he say's no. I haven't seen the car. It lives in Carson City NV. I'll call him again, maybe he put his glasses on.
