Re: Drum Brake Front Hub Offset/Interchange
64-72 A body (Chevelle, GTO, etc), 67-69 F body (Camaro, Firebird), and 68-74 X body (Nova, Omega, Ventura, Apollo) cars all use the same spindle.
a disc spindle is just a drum spindle with the big top boss cut down a little over 1/2", and the early (64-65, maybe into 66)A body spindles have smaller holes for the steering arm and upper boss.
the A bodies use a different steering arm than the F and X bodies- which use a couple of different but interchangable arms.
