    I am getting ready to put a 9" in my 69 Firebird. You need to find one that is the same width. Thats the hard part. You may have to move spring perches. You may need the driveshft shortened as well. And one big thing Ford uses 5x4.5 bolt circle and GM uses 5x4.75 so you need new wheels, or get custom axles, brakes, etc.

    Yup.
    Dan took care of most of it.

    I've got a 9" in my '67 camaro, and it's got custom axles to accomodate the chevy lug pattern and my ralley rims.
    Another thing is there are two versions of the 9" the "big bearing" (3.250") and the "small bearing"(3.062") 9" rears.
    They've also got 28, 31, 33, and 35 spline axles. /forums/images/icons/wink.gif

    There's companies that are supposed to make pretty much a "bolt in" 9" rear for camaros but they are probally expensive and you could build your own rearend up for cheaper.

    I post over there every once in a great while when i have a question about my camaro, and theres some pretty knowledgeable first gen camaro guys over there.

    Take it easy man.
