the way our novas work is the steering arms are attached to the spindle, lowering the car brings all that linkage down, whereas the chevelle arms dont hang as low, the geometry is higher up in general.

if you keep your stock hardware, any clearance issues could damage your steering components., its not too likely, but its still a concern

that nova is sweet but I bet there was some fabrication going on there. As long as you arnt scared away by that it can be done. That nova was sick but you can find bolt on parts that will work just as good and 2'' is safe to do even with all the stock linkage.:yes:

heidt's 2 drop spindles

First off They are used. Not sure how much although, they are still in original box with the instruction sheet. I bought them from guy who had them with 53 chevy truck that had a 69 camaro front stub welded on to it .His plan is to upgrade to air ride, and I bought some other stuff that he wouldn't be using.
200.00 plus shipping.

Your probably referring to my 71 in CC.

The chevelle arms work great for adding some more wheel to tie rod clearance. You must relocate the inner pivots also though to avoid severe bumpsteer. Check out the Ride Tech Tru Turn kit. Basically what I did, but only spent $200 on everthing instead of a grand.

2" drop spindles

well I looked that up, from my location to yours about 30.00 $$ I would split that with you, 175.00 +15.00 =190.00 does that work for you? BTW I figured to zip 15217
