Updated list with the info folks have provided so far. I included the CRG contributor to keep from duplicating input. I did not include the X-code of the '69 Camaro assuming it did not effect the body construction and use of the center axle bumper (snubber) usage. We will have this CRG thread to look back on to see that Camaro build type info.

If you are keeping track, I think it would be important to know if the car has a 12 bolt or 10 bolt and the axle ratio.

Thanks all for the responses.

I updated the list:

12B, model?, VN, push in, HOT302
01B, X11, NW, push in, Iowa Jon
02D, X77, NW, push in, from RikerZ28 (assumed X77)
04C, model?, plant? push in, from L78 steve
04C, Z11, VN, push in, from 169INDY
04C, Z10, plant?, Z10, push in, from Dusk Blue Z
06?, SS, VN, bolt in, from KevinW
05A, X33, NW, push in, Dave69x33
05A, X77, NW, push in, from Iowa Jon
05A, X77, NW, bolt in, from x77-69z28
05A, X77, plant?, push in, from Dusk Blue Z
05E, X77, NW, bolt in from copo
06A, X44, NW bolt in, from copo
08E, model? NW, bush in, from x66 714
09C, X77, NW, push in, from Badshifter
09D, model?, NW, push in, from R68 GTO

Questions:

HOT302, I assume your 12B car is a very early build '69?

bcmiller, Good point.  I assumed all '69 bodies would have the center and outer axle snubbers so I did not think to ask for the 10 vs 12 bolt input. Some folks responded with the type of Camaro they have so I updated the list with a few question for some folks.

Dusk Blue Z, can you update your input to let us know which plant?

KevinW, your Oct68 Norwood car, what model and was it a early build?

L78Steve, what model and plant was your 04C?

Mine is an X44 COPO BE rear.

Just a pure speculative theory on this topic.  We have the change document that notes the move to bolt in style.  For late build cars (past normal production end date of July time frame), they may have received old style or a mix due to limited availability of new style bolt in.  I wonder what the design is of the 1970 Camaro snubber.....same bolt in, different bolt in, or push in?
