Note here from the Chevrolet Dealer Service Information Bulletin dated September 29, 1969.

The first C in the code designates it as a Passenger (car) type axle versus Truck. This is for very late 1969 model year axles and continued into 1970.  Things changed again in 1971. Remember that GM "Corporate" 10 bolt axles were gradually implemented in the early 1970s.

Thanks for your post and welcome to the site.

What we are looking for in this thread is data on cars built the summer of 1969.

I will send you a private message.

Had someone else send me some data, it is the last one on the list.  C BE 1030G1  - not peened.

This does remain an active topic. I may have a few more to add that were obtained the past few years.

Remember when submitting data - put all of the information requested in ONE POST - PLEASE.

Some notations have been made for C BU axles where the C has been peened. I did not note this on all of the ones listed.

Here is what we have so far.  We need more data points for axle assembly dates between early June and early August.  My apologies if your data was inadvertently missed.

It appears that the 341 casting number started being used in June. It appears that the 3 letter code had started by early August, possibly earlier. 

Remember that there was a shutdown for the latter part of July and into very early August.
