You need spindles off of a disc brake car..I am sure the camaro and Nova are the same..just check a parts book to cross reference the rotor part numbers. You will also have to change master cylinder and maybe proportioning valve. If you want to use your drum brake spindles you can buy a Wilwood kit or Aerospace, Strange and a few others make them. Depending on the weight of the car those kits are between $550- $700.
