Default Shackle and bushings?

Is there a difference between mono and multi leaf shackles and rear bushing diameter 1969 Nova? Also is there any difference from the first gen. Camaro to the 3rd gen. Nova shackles and bushings? Thanks!

No they are all the same size. If you need just the bushings:

Iff you need front and back with new hardware:

I showed you red because I like to show off the effort I put into the car to get rid of rubber bushings, but they also com in black polyurethane plastic.

OK thanks I wasn't sure since most places say it only fits Camaro or is it a mono or multi leaf. I have been out of the Nova loop since I sold my last one 9 years ago. Yes I regretted it ever since.

One problem you might encounter is Dodge Dart (Plymouth Swinger) multileaf springs being installed on your Nova to replace a monoleaf spring from the factory. The Doge springs are about a quarter inch narrower and have smaller bushings. They were frequently swapped in place of factory monos because they are cheap to find in the bone yard.

If you can not get GM bushings to fit. (GM has two size bushings those for leaf spring cars and another size fort pick-ups, vans, and full size station wagons) Full size wagons have leaf springs instead of coil springs like the rest of the full size cars, but they are off of a light truck.

I should be good. I ordered the 3 leaf mono replacements for a 69 Nova. They are supposed to fit in the mono spring bracket. The rear eye looks to measure 1 1/2" ID.

Bushings are pressed in, then the inner steel sleeve.
