On my Camaro the springs are not original Chevy springs and I would like to replace them with originals. (it was some kind of hop-up kit from the sixties, as I understand - will need original spindles as well). I have a 1967 Coupe with a stock 350 and no air conditioning.

When I look at the 1967 assy manual I can see that there are a lot of different springs. But in the parts catalog I have there are not that many different ones. Can any one suggust replacement springs that will have the absolute correct ride height? Thanks!

Thanks for the reply. Eaton also only has two versions of the coil springs.

So I guess this means that I have nothing to worry about? Anyone else out there change their coil springs and have tips on what to do, what to avoid?
Thanks.

Not on my Camaro, but you have to be real careful not to let the springs pop when you dis-assemble the a- arms.  A chain or other device to hold them together is recommended.  There is a lot a pressure on them and people have been killed or maimed when they pop off.

thanks for the reply. Yeah, I have some spring compressors which is a device that keeps the spring compressed for removal. After they are applied to the spring, the spring can be removed without the popping/maiming/killing.  Smiley
