Default What do I have?

I was informed by the guy I purchased my car from, that it has a 1972 Nova front clip. The a-arms and spindles are after market. The clip looks like a GM, but which one. I ordered a power rack and pinion for a 72 Nova. It didnít fit. The rack and pinion bolts to the rear bolt of the lower a-arms. Mine has a measurement of 17 1/2Ē. I now this isnít much to go on, if you need other measurements, just tell what measurement Lyon need.

Welcome to the Team!

What kind of car do you have?. You have mentioned any thing but the front sub frame. Those front sub frames are used in Rat Rods, to fifties vintage pick-ups, and even in Camaros and Novas.

I don't like rack and pinion steering it creates a lot more problems than it's worth (shaves a few pounds) I would rather use a Vega or Corvair gear box to save weight and avoid all of the steering problems associated with rack and pinion steering. Most are out of a Ford Pinto a car that is only two thirds the weight of your Nova (if you have one) so you already exceeded the safety boundries of the design.

The gm sub frame is on a 1940 Plymouth Coupe.

Some pics would help us see what you got going on there.
