    The van was the only vehicle with the straight axle, but the same year Nova brake parts will fit. However, since you have no brakes at all, this would be the perfect excuse to buy a set of M1dadio's excellent disc brake brackets. They use easy to find Trans Am brake parts.

    Kingpins are still available through NAPA

    I just replaced my kingpins, tie rod ends, and drag link, made a huge difference in my steering. Next step is the M1Dadio disc conversion.
