Spring part numbers for 1995/1996?

Want some new struts? What brand springs to buy? How much camber to run? What brake pads? What's the best setup for your situation....

Spring part numbers for 1995/1996?

Postby Money pit Beretta » Thu Aug 28, 2014 6:28 pm

Once again I'm looking for Z26 springs. Anyone know the part numbers?

All I can find at Rock Auto and AC Delco is
Front: 45H1067
Rear: 45H3101
The front seems to be FE2. The rear seems to be all base models(FE2 again).


Side note for GTZ owners: They have AC Delco springs for you at Rock Auto.

You probably won't find FE3 specific springs. I'm surprised they list something different for the GTZ...

I guess it would be "heavy duty" or "performance"?

As for the GTZ:

I don't know if they will ever be exactly what GM made for the FE3 setup originally but I don't know for sure.

Well the only good thing if they are not the same is at least they are not worn out and rusted.
I checked my compressed height vs the rear listed. It's about the same, mine is 10in and the listed spring is 11in. There must be some sag or settling.

Funny thing is that the front is listed as the 1994 Z26 2.3L spring.

Just an update. I bought the rears and they are on the car. They feel like my old FE2 springs, but are better over all. My springs were not as bad as I thought. Still these Delcos are an improvement.
Soon the car will get the front springs for a real test. Also the GR2's that I have will be going on. The struts are Sensa a Crap and the shocks are Monroe Plus. The GR2's will be a step up!

Ouch, pushed down on the rear after I put those GR2's on and man that is stiff. Like a rock.......well I hope not. This is the old man car(soft, but not too soft).
Yes I'm the old man.
