I have a 69 Camaro with drum brakes and a subframe from a Nova(68-74) with disc brakes. Side by side the only difference I can see are the motor mount stands. Are these a direct swap or would I be better off buying a disc brake conversion for my 69? Any advice would
great.

Thanks

You don't need to swap the subframe. Read more here: http://www.pozziracing.com/brakes.htm#Converting_Drums_to_Discs

The subframes differ for each year of first gen Camaro due to the location of the lower CA bumper.  Believe Nova's followed the same way.  See this http://www.camaros.org/suspen.shtml#aarms

In no way do you need to swap frame for a drum to disc conversion as stated!  Just swap the spindles!!!
