the washer on the end of the shock is staked on....might look like a weld, but I believe it is staked.  I have several sets of orig shocks and they all the same - staked as in the third pic.

Lloyd - yes I agree - I do have this or the R89 in the car as we speak..(.have to check)....related to the color - the repro is red - what do u think, paint it yellow?

Im still confused on the color scheme and does the letters get painted as well as the caps?

If that pic is org achieves, look at the heat riser position....there has been much discussion on this from the point of what is the correct position.

Im thinking of getting a stencil made so that u can overlay it and spray it on with adhesion promotor so it will stick and last. 

I need to check to see if the DELCO lettering is the same on all the batteries that we are doing - If you want to send to me your exact height and length of the wording and a pic, ill check with my other ones and see if I can get the stencils made up.

You can email me at edm@montiniaz.com

From the above pics - it is hard to tell - and from what I can see, there is a difference in the loop area at the rear of the spring, where the shackle mounts...orig has more of an arch.  Having said that - I think the look is right on and most importantly - if they have the right height!

Im temped to get a set fronts and backs from Bob.  Does he have any special discounts etc going on for the holiday?

On this discussion on springs - im getting ready to restore a 69Z...car came partially assembled - however im going to start over.  It has new springs in the front and the back - however I don't know anything about them.  Car was started back in 1980 and im thinking it has higher lift springs in the front and rear, but do not have any definitive idea.  Motor is currently out of the car as well. 

Im thinking instead of gambling on the fact these springs COULD BE correct, I should go for a new set from Camaro Specialities....right thinking??  or can I tell once I get them out if they are correct, orig or some replacements?  Appreciate the thoughts....

PS - this was a very good thread and I lover the idea of the shark coating.....those results are fantastic!
