Well I have a pretty much stock 62 4 dr nova and was my daily driver. It appears that an axle bearing went out and started smoking. Do not know the extent of the damage but a replacement might be better than a repair at this point. Car is currently at a shop awaiting inspection. I have been looking for information and I want to know what other cars or year novas have a direct bolt-on replacement rear axle. I am not familiar with rear ends so any help would be appreciated.
