  10. Rear end?

    Drivetrain & Performance
    I have a 72 Nova that has 3.08 gears in the rear end. It also has had a spool installed. I have a 307 engine with a TH350 tranny. Is this rear end good for the car? I hope to eventually drop a 383 stroker with a TH400 tranny, so what gears should I run then? Thanks for the help.

    Steering, Suspension, and Chassis
    Hey, I'm new to the site, and to my recently purchased '72 Nova. I've been looking for a manual steering center link, but no one seems to offer them for 3rd generation Novas.
