Correct Shocks for 1968 Camaro LF-7 327 SB
« on: May 29, 2018, 01:31:52 AM »
Hi Camaro experts - 

I really need some help on the correct spiral shocks for my 1968 Camaro 327 SB base LF-7 model, no A/C, sport coupe, 3-speed, no RPO F41 heavy suspension system.  In researching shocks, according to the 1969 P&A 34 Revised July 1, 1969 catalog 7.345 Absorber Assy (7.242-7.345), the 67-69 Camaro Delco front spiral shock should be GM part number 3192953. Also, in the same catalog, 7.345-7.346, the 68 Camaro (327) (exc: 4-speed) rear spiral Delco shock mono-leaf should be GM part number 3192976 11.55 unit. However, in the 1968 Camaro Factory Assembly Instruction Manual, UPC 3 A4, the front spiral Delco shock absorber is GM part number 3192826 (3192477 is RPO F41). In the same manual, page UPC 4 B3, the rear mono leaf spiral Delco shock absorber is GM part number 3192831.  Also, some Camaro parts retailers have the front spiral shocks with GM part number 3192419 and GM part number 3192477 and the rear mono leaf with GM part number 3192831 and GM 3192420.  I'm really hoping some Camaro experts can really help me out and provide the correct GM part numbers for the front and rear spiral shocks without a heavy-duty suspension system for a basic 1968 Camaro.  Finally, since my car was manufactured May 8, 1968, would a good date code for the shocks be Feb 7, 1968?  Many thanks in advance.   GWP4
