    Question Question on OEM Springs

    I have a 2000 Camaro SS with 70,000 miles. It has an Addco front sway bar and KYB adjustable front shocks. Car has been both a daily driver and High Speed Autocrosser for several years. Iíve just discovered the passenger side front spring has a crack in it Ė resulting in an annoying noise. Frankly, Iím probably going to trade it soon Ė but I want to replace the OEM spring first. A parts supplier has told me there is a 2-digit alpha code on a tab attached to the spring. He tells me he needs the code because this car had varying spring rates. Iím unable to locate the code.
    Can you help?
    Thanks VERY much.

    I have a hawk... I put Strano springs all around... still have the OEM springs. I think hawks came with WS6 springs. Part of me wants to keep them in case I wanted to restore the car but.... I'm not sure. In any event I don't think it's hard to find used stock springs anyway.

    Check the RPO codes on the back edge of your driver door -- the springs should be listed there. You can decipher the codes using the sticky at the top of the "General Help" section. For our car, I took a digital photo of the door sticker so I could look at it on my computer along with the codes -- made it much easier to decipher.
