South Africa had taken three wickets in the second session at Centurion Park to leave Pakistan on 199-7 before the eighth-wicket partnership took the score to 243.
Nazir had 31 from 28 balls and Naved was on 14 at the break.
Left-arm finger spinner Paul Harris had Faisal Iqbal caught by Herschelle Gibbs for 9 after lunch.
Captain Inzamam-ul-Haq was caught by a diving A.B. de Villiers at short midwicket for 35 off Shaun Pollock and Pakistan was 187-6.
Twelve runs later, Kamran Akmal tried sweep a ball from Harris and was caught by Gibbs at short fine-leg for 15.
Harris had figures of 3-46 and Pollock 2-32.
Resuming in the morning session on 103-2, Pakistan added just 12 runs before Younis Khan was out leg-before-wicket for 38 off the bowling of Pollock.
Imran Farhat, who was dropped by wicketkeeper Mark Boucher on 47 after edging a ball from Makhaya Ntini, was caught at silly point by De Villiers off Harris for 68.
The Proteas were dismissed for 417 in reply to Pakistan's 313 for a first-innings lead of 104.
