1969 Z/28 springs
« on: December 28, 2006, 05:39:17 PM »
My car has 5 leafs in the rear. The shock plates,shackles and bushings look to be all original. As I was cleaning the springs, toward the front on the top long spring there was a stenciled number in white. Can't make out the number but the last digit looks like it is O. Any way I can tell if these springs are original equipment or not?  Thanks,  Sam

Original rear springs look like the photo below, with rectangular "pockets" near the ends for the anti-squeak pads.

Exact original rear leaf springs are available from Rick's and other Camaro vendors.  About $380 a pair plus shipping.  We've installed them in many cars.
