Do a search. No one has identified a rack that will drop in. The Chevette rack is too short, but can be made to work, as Lambo kit builders do it occasionally. The Merkur XR4TI rack is not a drop-in, either. It requires TONS of rework to get it in the car. I am curious about the C4 Corvette rack. I have not had time to look into it, but it may be the correct length.

Chevette is narrower than the Fiero; hence the rack is shorter.
wcapman is working on swapping in a Chevette power rack.

I have the rack already installed. Very simple to do. You must carefully cut the mounts off the crossmember. You will be re-using the left side one. Find the center of the old rack and mark it on the crossmember. Then find the center of the chevette rack align your marks and that is where the rack needs to be mounted. I bolted the mount to the rack and held it in place to be welded. The right side mount must be fabricated unless you can want to find a chevette to cut the mount off of. i fabricated mine. About $5 worth of metal. weld it all together. The rack is shorter so you need a set of tie-rod extensions from Held or you can fabricated your own. The last piece you need to make the rack work is a Universal joint from Flaming RIver (expensive).
Prices Rack from Autozone $120 Tie-rod ext $20 Univeral joint $130 Metal to fab mount $10
