Can you post a pic? Blue Stripe could be early ls6 springs or AFR had some single springs that had Blue stripe as well on a set I had a long time ago. Not sure of a actual purple stripe though. I've seen Yellow, Full Blue, Blue Stripe, Yellow Stripe, Pink and Green striped. Were they stock heads?

They were stock heads but you can tell setting them next to a stock spring they are different.

If you're worried and just looking to just replace them, I have a set of PAC Racing 1518 beehives with only 200 miles on them if you're interested. Pressures are the same as new.

Instead of playing Russian Roulette with unknown springs, pick up the set from Ed if they fit your cam.

I plan to run BTR .660 dual springs with my cam, but I was just curious if anybody had seen them before.
