You're welcome, Mike.  I looked at the axles again and they match up with your observations.

And for some reason the Firebird apparently used an "I-Beam" section (a couple on eBay right now).

Yes they did, and they used two of them on an axle.

Does anyone know if the front bracket and the plate welded to the body are the same on a firebird as on a camaro? Looking at the one eBay the bracket does look similar.

Didn't know that! Thanks! I found a firebird in the junkyard last year that still had the radius rod assembly on it. Going to go this weekend to see if it's still there.

I don't know. I've seen the brackets and radius rods though so I would imagine they are. Anyone know who has them? I am also going to look for parts for my '68 C-10. Just going to have a fun Saturday  Grin

Yep, you're correct. Just saw all the brackets and plate for sale on the Rick's Camaro website.
