End Force Color Code:

  • Steel - Bodies are color-coded to indicate end forces:
    Silver = Light End Force;
    Black = Standard End Force;
    Gold = Heavy End Force
  • Stainless Steel - Bodies are color-coded on the rear of the assembly to indicate end forces;
    Plain = Light End Force;
    Black = Standard End Force;
    Orange = Heavy End Force.
