No tags left on springs.
Guess I’m trying to find the right aftermarket spring to get the correct ride height. There only seem to be bb or sb springs. Some say with ac. Hard to believe The bb with ac spring would be a perfect solution. Anyone here with a bb and ac that have purchased aftermarket spring that looks great? If so what company?
Also, do bb springs have more coils or just stiffer? If they have more coils what are the length of each?

Sure this has been asked and answered many times but can’t seem to locate what I need.
Would like to put in new front coil springs. Afraid that whatever I order will make the car look like a lift kit was installed. Has anyone with a similar car bought aftermarket springs that were the correct dimension and strength to give the correct height? According to the charts a 69 camaro 396 HA, HB and HG spring was the same part number. 181 lbs and up. Why give it different I D numbers?
Thx in advance

Ok, finally found a reference. The pink wire is supposed to be stop idle solenoid. I gather an ac car should have this to increase idle when compressor is energized. Can anyone provide a pic of this installed on a car?
Thanks for the assistance.

Thank you GMAD.
I searched this site yesterday for wiper wiring and all I would get is Chick’s z/28 restoration.

Again thank you!

Not trying to be ungrateful, Do we want to just make an automated response for every question directing them to the AIM? Hope not, I would assume most people have tried searching before asking questions. That’s why I have only ever asked a handful.  I obviously see wiring is routed above the wiper, but was hoping for personal experiences. Under seems neater. I guess I was just asking where these connectors and wires actually live.
As for the large gauge pink wire, please show me in the AIM where it is. I must be simply missing it. Perhaps it’s for an option I have forgotten about.

Thanks for the response. Forgot to mention this is a 69.

Too many years, so many wires…….
I have 396, turbo 400 with AC
Anyone have a picture of
1. Where to route the compartment wiring…above wiper motor or below.
2. How the kickdown wiring ties into the wiper motor
3. Finally where does the thick pink wire go with female connector

Thank you

Thanks everyone for the help

It is a flat connector. It is not the e brake wire. It plugs into one of the slots in the black box….I think. Like a jumper wire for some reason.
Thx for the input

Trying to get engine back in camaro. I had AC fan and wipers not working. After a bit of investigating, it appears that the firewall harness was bad.
I replaced it and all is now good! However, In poking and probing inside the car I must have pulled a brown wire out of its home.
Was hoping someone has a harness they can look at and let me know where the brown wire in the attached picture should be plugged into.
If you can send a matching picture that would be great.
Thanks in advance

Assume everyone has heard the Charlotte Autofair is postponed until June 11th -13th.
Right on top of Asheville's small AACA show.

I did a search and only found one reference to driveshaft identification markings for a 69 396 driveshaft.

“I have a photo of a TH-400 car showing Orange,(Front) Green,(middle) and white (rear).”

Can anyone confirm that this is indeed correct or point me to an article or publication that does?

Another tidy bit.  I fixed up another camaro and used these wheels. It was dark gray primer.  Sold it someone around the Gastonia or Charlotte area...I think winter of 87 or spring of 88 before I got married. If anyone in that area remembers this car please let me know...

What I would do to have her it for $2000.00... lol Wish I had at least kept something with the vin#. I assume it was X55 and must have been early. May not have even had x code. Oh well.
Wish I had known what I know now..right? Lol. It was a beautiful car at the time. I was 16..lot of good memories in the year or so I had it....I guess the pic would be from 79. So began the camaro disease.
