Hi, I am Mike, welcome. I'm reviewing your question.

I doubt it, the 76 el camino is an A body and the 95 impale is a B body. The 76 el camino is related to the 1973–1977 Chevrolet Chevelle and the 1973–1977 GMC Sprint. the 95 impale is related to the Buick Roadmaster, Callaway SuperNatural Impala SS, Chevrolet Caprice and Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser.

is there a reason why you want to change out the entire rear axle and not just the backing plates, rotors, calipers, etc?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
I can use caliper,rotors and is there a way I can use late model rims with out going to adapters, what front rotors can use to get 76 to later rims

I never said you could, I just asked why you wanted to change out the entire rear axle.

You are better off getting access to the Hollander Interchange manual which I do not have access to. I thought all of the salvage yards had access to it but obviously the one you went to didn't or they would have told you if it fit or not.
