You kinda blew the whole page outta whack with that one!
You just need to go into photoshop, or what ever program you use, resize the photo and save as...then upload it and post it.

Jim, I went over the FAQ page you linked and unfortunatly don't see any answers based on facts. Rear canisters weighing 50 lbs each and fronts being 25 lbs each. Maybe the bird shakers were 50lbs (I doubt it) but not the ones in the back of the camaro. The description of the insides of a canister is shakey at best Now I'm not trying to insult anyone or talk down the other site. The answers to the questions on the other site are no more than "I think", or "I've heard" which is great for converstaion but can't be taken as definitive answers. Vintage 68 threw in a bit of humor but I think what he's posted is close to matching what I've read on the subject. If you've got facts I know the guys here will be fast to BBQ some crow and accept what you say as everyone here is all about learning... It's got to be facts though...

The part numbers you provided are going to be great for comparison and should help reach a definitive on interchangability. Your contributions, current and future are appreciated.

...Dennis

if GM knew 25 years ago that we would add 100lbs, well 75 for me and 25 for the lady, they could have saved some weight in the shakers.
more ballast under the belt today. . . .

I love crow ! I've eaten a lot of it.
A little 'Pappy's' and it tastes pretty much like chicken ...
I would love to see more info if available.
DjD pretty much sums up my reading of the 'bird site, alot of 'someone-said-someone-said, I think'.
The developement timelines for F-Body product developement, the managers involved and the reasons for their decisions for the final product are widely published by several different authors. Most of the information has solid facts available from several sites to verify this information. But new information comes to light nearly every day.
They could all have it wrong, more facts could be out there - bring them on.
We are here to learn and help each other.

ps: Firebirds had multi leaf springs from the start and ride much nicer...

great idea Sci-flyer! and btw...I love the ones you sent me checked them out when I got off work...gonna blast those puppies & splatter them.

I get confused with the fronts....the rears are a bit easier for me to differentiate.

Thanks Jim, looking at the pics Steve W provided of his '68 fronts and the firebird '68 fronts in your link they are different. Chris' pic of the camaro '68 rear shaker looks different from the '68 firebird also...

Great discussion- and I have owned a '68 Firebird coupe in the past- I loved that car, and I dearly want a '69 Firebird convertible someday.

My project convert's front shakers came out of a wrecked 69 in Atlanta, GA, found about 1980 or so. The car was incredibly smashed-- sort of flattened. I would have hated to see the driver. The "foot" of the right one had rusted away, probably from years of seeping battery acid. I still haven't fixed that-- I'm waiting for final assembly time. Here are pictures (I hope) of both front shakers in place during a test assembly last year. DARN-- I can't figure out how to include the pictures!!!!

So getting back to one of the objectives of this thread:
Quote:
Maybe we can come up with a gallery as a sort of 'spotters guide' for each style and model to make life easier at the swap meets or online auctions?
It appears the vibration dampeners vary not just by year but by vehicle manufacturer, we have a lot more knowledge when "shopping".

The more I compare the Firebird and Camaro, I continue to find they are more different than alike. In 1969 I knew I wanted either a Camaro or Firebird for my first car. I found a good year-old '68 Bird first. After 35 years, I still own it.

Well, to me, it does appear that there is one set that is a crossover. The 1967 Firebird fronts do appear to be the same as the 1968 Camaro fronts.

I can post some pics of unmounted shaker pairs with dimensions if desired. The mounted pictures are a big help too.

Thanks for the replies, and keep up the good work!

The rears do not look like they are for a '69. Look at the picture on page 1 of this thread and the top bracket is curved on the '69. I believe that the fronts are the same for all 3 years but not sure.

That is what mine look like. Notice the upper bracket on the rears is not curved.
