    I don't know but I agree the blue spring don't look right.

    I don't about the blue springs, but the seller is well known in the first gen community. He lists repops on his web site for much less:

    http://camaros.com/camaro-sheet-metal-parts/

    so I guess he knows the difference.

    Also, original 1970 assembly line hinges had nylon bushings in two of the hinges. Not sure if that matters or not.

    Here I thought $500 was a lot for them. Over $100 each when repops are $50. They don’t seem to be rare...even Yearone is offering GM pieces even though the are charging stupid prices like Camaro Central does.

    The blue spring is a concern to me though. I wouldn’t mind buying them...save me the headache of rebuilding mine.

    For that money you could have them made out of billet, HAA HA , save your money and get yours rebuilt, or buy a set and have them rebuilt then sell yours to someone looking to do the same, I have an old set , ruff, I would sell for cheap

    Just a theory that GM when making these may have had different colored springs for different applications. Camaro doors are probably the longest-heaviest so maybe the blue spring was the most powerful. The basic metal pieces were the same for maybe several cars.

    Really? It would be good to know what applications, can help maybe finding good pieces that only need the spring? I know I tried to rebuild a set years ago and ended up buying a repop set.
