Question

I just purchased a set of Bilsteins on Ebay for $49.99. The guy that sold them had a old part# for them that wasn't listed on Bilsteins site. Do these look ok or was it a useless purchase?

336-945 is the body part number......it has nothing to do with the shock part number itself.

All of the front shock part numbers were changed a little over a year ago. The old pre-fix was "AK" and the new pre-fix is "BE3". The old Camaro front part number was AK-2072 and the new is BE3-2972. The rear part numbers have remained the same; AK-2073 and AK-2074. The 2073 is for the 'Mono leaf' rear and the 2074 is for the 'Mulit leaf' rear.

If any one were to need shock valving numbers, I can also supply those as well.

Kevin- The picture on E-Bay looks exactly like the correct configuration for the Camaro and I will say that they will fit because the supplied number of the shock body is the same on mine.

From what it looks like, the box for the shocks is about 10+ years old. They havent used that box container for years.......
