I didn't see any photos of an 'EY' spring tag, and since I dismantled the front suspension of my original unrestored '69 Z28 yesterday, I have a few photos.. I was surprised to find both springs still had the tags attached, although one of them was only a partial (with the dangling end gone). Both were labeled EY (my car is '69 Z28/RS, with cowl hood so the weight is a little larger on the front I suppose than the standard spring. I'll include a photo here of the best of the two tags, which was loose enough to easily remove.
At that point, I planned to just clean and reuse my original springs, but ALAS.. when I further disassembled, I found a single broken off coil in the bottom of the passenger side lower A-arm. so I have a question: 'Where do I find new springs that match the spring rate and height??? I am only cleaning and repairing, because I desire to show my car in the original unrestored class one day; should I replace both springs and attach my original tags? Re the color:
It certainly appears to be dark blue lettering on light/med blue tape
Note: If you look closely at the ends of the tag strip, it is 'serrated', like would happen tearing off the end of a piece of tape, so that appears to be how they did it. The whole tag I removed was 3.5" long when flattened out. Are the reproduction tags serrated on the ends or flat cut?
