    I just picked up a 2" Goodmark cowl hood! I'm looking for a set of hood springs to hold it up. I have a 4" cowl bolt on fiberglass hood,those spring won't hold up the steel hood. I will be selling the 4" hood after I get the 2" cowl hood painted!:bowtie:

    I had the exact same scenario. The car I purchased had a 4" fiberglass, bought a 2" steel cowl Goodmark and the springs would not hold it up. I purchased springs right through Goodmark and they work like a champ.

    Just about any place that sells camaro parts should sell factory replacement springs,and those should work fine.
