Are the rear Z bumper guards the same size as rear bumper guards for other 69 Camaros?
Are the front bumper guards shorter than the Z rear guards?

Thanks

They are not "Z" rear bumper guards. Because of lower rear trim height Z/28 equipment included V32 rear bumper guards to comply with federal bumper height standards. They were optional; any 69 Camaro could be ordered with them. I believe they were also included with heavy-duty rear springs.

John,

 Can you elaborate more on "lower trim height". Was the rear of the car's height significantly different for multi-leafs vs mono-leaf?

Thanks

Rear trim height dimension "D" is the distance from the top center of the rear axle to the bottom of the frame rail. Of all variants listed in the manual Z/28 is the lowest at 5.20" nominal. Cars with G31 rear springs are the highest at 6.29", 6.30", 6.38". All measurements are +/- .38".

Z/28 also has the lowest front trim height.

This info is in section O page A10 of the Assembly Instruction Manual.

Thanks William. I don't have The AIM. In the parts inventory for Camaro, was there 2 (or more) sets of multi-leaf, say 4-leaf, that were arched different to determine the ride height with one specific to The Z/28 and another specific to non Z's that required mult-leaf due to options installed? 

Sorry for mistakenly calling you John in my previous question. Too much reading sometimes.

Not according to our information-all Z/28s received 'BM' rear springs no matter how the car was configured. There were 3 possible front springs.

Other '69s have been known to use a 4-leaf spring but it may have been a different part number/assembly code.

Check the info on this site.
