TRIPLE BLACK 1967 CAMARO SS/RS CONVERTIBLE

« on: January 06, 2011, 08:30:05 AM »

Did all the shocks that were installed at the factory have the 2 letter I.D. sticker on them? If so, does anyone reproduce the stickers for a 67's? I have seen where the sticker is placed on the rear shocks, but I have not seen the location for the fronts. Can someone tell me the approximate location where the stick should be placed?
Thanks,
Sean

What I really want to know is: did front shocks recieve a broadcast sticker like the rear onse did? And if so, I would like to know the approximate location of where it was placed on the shock.

Yes, all cars came with the stickers.

There's no set location. I've seen them all over the place. Some up high where the weather couldn't get to them, and some set low that were all torn up.

Thanks Bertfam,
That was what I was looking for. I have a pair o NOS rear shocks, so I knew what the decal looked like, and where it went. It's ashamed they were is such bad shape. They were  yellowed, crumbling, and barely attached, but there was enough there for me to be able get a good idea of what they looked like. I had to make my own , as I was unable to locate a set of reproductions. After some research on here , I was able to determine what the code was for the fronts. I have a set of reproduction front shocks , and I made some decals for them. t I just wanted to make sure  got the placement correct, if there was such a thing...lol . After talking with you, I take it there is no right or wrong way, so i will place mine to the high side to keep them from harms way...lol.
Thanks,
Sean

Where were the tags for those located?

High on the cylinder cover. They were about an inch or so below the top edge of the cylindrical shaped cover that covers the piston.

That sounds about right.

I no longer have the original shocks on my Camaro, but up until a few months ago, I DID have the original shocks on my 69 Corvair. You can see the locations of the tags (or at least what's left of them) in the below pictures.

The lower shock in your picture has the skicker in about the same location as mine did. Mine were just a little higher that yours, but like you said there was no science to it, just get it on where it can be seen. I'll put the fronts on where they are on your picture. BTW, can anyone give me any feed backon the reprduction spiral shocks? They look like they are made well, but how do they preform and hold up?
Thanks Ed for all your help,
Sean
