The camaro rear end is gonna be problems ahead because it is wider than 64-67 nova stock ten bolts meaning you are gonna have a hard time running bigger tires which may be why you are running leaf springs to get the car up off the tires?the first gen camaros and novas used mono leafs with lots of sucess. ten bolt 64-67 nova rear ends are usually under $200 bucks and would be a better choice

AND Pictures and more information on how you are gonna use this car would help people help you
