    21-297 is the part number everybody uses (Eaton, Dayton, JRS, etc)
    This part number is the OE replacement for many years Camaro including
    my 1973

    I'm thinking that the 21-915 may be the # for the Z-28

    Has ANYBODY used/installed the JRS 21-297
    JRS imports this spring from China
    Has anybody installed this spring ????
    Were you satisifed ???
    Have Pics ???

    TAMRAZ has lowest price at $215/pr Free Shipping

    I bought these DAYTON springs (made in USA) part # 21-297 to replace
    my 73 5 leaf springs....

    Purchased on line through SDTruckSprings.com (Dayton Dealer) as they had
    best price AND shipping $240 total

    I did not not buy the lower priced FREE SHIPPING JRS springs from TAMRAZ
    because I wanted the USA made DAYTON spring

    Good Info and they look correct!
    I would stay away from anything with a link which also mentions Nova springs.

    As several members have found.... Nova springs ARE NOT the same.

    I was warned away from the NOVA spring by a very knowledgeable man at DAYTON........

    He suggested that I buy the part # 21-297 (SEE ABOVE)

    I'm thinking this is NOT the correct five leaf spring for the 70+ Z28

    PLEASE confirm what is pictured above Z28= 480881
    Non Z28 = 480678 ???
    OK ...OK Thanks didnt SEE your above post........

    Now, I need to find the thread(s) where 70 Z28 owners have talked about
    ALL their springs problems and ask WHY or IF anybody has used this
    21-345 part #


    I TODAY spoke with Mike at EATON spring
    He told me that the EATON spring # ML0161 is
    CORRECT for 70 Z28 and has been sold to
    NASTYZ28 member(s) ANYBODY ?????
    Mike quoted me a 70Z28 spring number 3930074
    and claims that the industry SRI # 21-345 is WRONG
    and car will sit too high !!!!! so go figure.....

    DAYTON makes the 21-345 in Nebraska so I'm looking
    for end user or vendor reviews
