    Dave.
    I take it back, the color is very nice. I did say That 70Camaro's car showing Autumn gold was probably very old and faded. I have to add that color to my Favorites. Dave can I have your Camaro. I like that it is a 4 speed. Dave BB GM coil springs for Camaro's were not that great. When I bought my 1970 L-78 in December 1988 it was sagging in the front. The coils were EJ code which were only 300 PSI which is stupid for 396 Camaro's.

    Yes my car was very faded when I got it. Dave's car is very nice looking polished.

    John, the coil springs were changed over 15 years ago, I know they were Moog but forget the part #, maybe I can find the receipt.

    My opinion is if it is a BB 1970 Camaro with most options you would need a coil spring with 400 PSI for good handling and to last long. The Camaro suspension sheet in the booklet I have shows The 396 has about 5 choices 1 is 300 PSI code EJ which is the same code for the Z-28 with the lighter engine. The other 4 are 330 PSI with slightly larger coil diameters. My L-78 that I sold to chuckSharin had the EJ code and that is why the front was sagging when I bought it. I put in Godzilla front springs from Dick Guidstrand, but they were to much, so I bought 400 PSI coil springs and everything was good.
    John.
