sits too high per factory specs I'm sure, BUT sits JUST FINE for my taste, much more aggressive in my opinion than the factory look

Even though I like the “ridin high” look, it can’t be good for wheelhop

Many of my friends had Novas in the early 70s. Some still do.. It surprises me that we don't see more of them at car shows today. A light, inexpensive car with a variety of engine, transmission and trim options. Biggest problem was getting a decent tire under them. That's a nice one, not sure if it is $45k nice, but you never know until you ask.

The biggest problem with Most all Nova’s.....is that they Dog Tail
The next time you drive behind one....look at the off-set between the rear axle to the front suspension

I had not noticed that. Pretty much the same chassis as a Camaro, did they have the same problem?

 Same design Pat but I don't think the Camaro was the same size. Don't recall this problem with the Camaros but when

I worked in GM dealerships in the mid 60's we got work orders to correct the Nova dog tailing. Quite often we found

that somehow the rear leaf spring support notch had jumped out of position and we just set it back in place.As mentioned

don't ever remember doing this to a Camaro.
