16  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / 1968 SS350 Front Springs & Brake ID Tags/Tape on: July 23, 2011, 10:12:25 AM
Ok, so I've re-assembled my 68 subframe. It's a L48 w/ C60 Ac. I purchased the coil springs from Rick's. I've searched for spring rate ID tags/ tape with no luck. Did 68's have ID tags on the springs, and does anyone make a nice re-production? From other info I've seen here I should be looking for YZ tags or YV Tags.

I also have disc brakes and have seen that the backing plate is supposed to have a CS sticker, does anyone know where on the backing plate this should be applied.

Thanks for any help you can offer.

Bob

Wow, very cool detective work. I have a 03C ss350 NOR =stacks. I've havd plenty of people tell me I had the wrong louvers. All I knew was that late build 350's had stacks, now I can tell them which month it changed.

Sorry if this has been brought up before, I've spent about 30 minutes and 15-20 pages of searching the threads and can't seem to find answers.

I know that Super Sport Package included special engine, dual exhaust, springs, tires, clutch, radiator, transmission (if 4-speed), axle and u-joints, starting motor, hood, badging, and stripes. Here's the question in 1968 did SS require power steering, power brakes, or disc brakes? Were there options required if other options were purchased, ie if you bought disc brakes did they have to be power?

And Rally Sport Package included Z21 plus fullwidth grille with concealed headlights, bright lower body side moldings instead of standard body side moldings, RS grille emblem (or SS), parking/turn signal lights below front bumper, Rally Sport front fender Z22 nameplate in place of Camaro nameplate, black finished lower body (except certain dark colors), RS (or SS) fuel cap, dual-unit taillights, backup lights below rear bumper, RS horn button (except Z23, Z87, N30,N34).

What about console guages weren't they required?

Front and rear spoilers- were they independant of either package?

Thanks for any info you can provide.

thanks.  Car originally had disc brakes. 20 years ago when I didn't have any funds for maintenance, a mechanic convinced me the single piston calipers would be cheaper to maintain and less likely to leak. Since the 69's were readily available and the 68s weren't, he switched them.

Thanks. So If I get the brackets as well the calipers, they should work with the spindles and rotors I already have?

My 68 has 69 front disc brakes. I want to change back to 68 calipers. Do I neet to change anything else to put the 68 brakes back stock?
