    Not sure on that one. I know both of my SS's are the only 4th gens I've noticed that on. The Z28's I've had didn't have the orange shocks.

    I do know for certain the SS's came with specific coil springs made by Eibach, and if it's a low mile car and clean enough, you can see the Eibach stickers with part numbers on the coil springs. Because of that I'm pretty sure the shocks were valved differently to go with the package along with the larger sway bars.
