I believe most companies mark them different colors for different spring pressures.

Are you implying that it is a build inspector mark? because it is not consistent across the lot of them..Just curious. Chasing down noises this morning...trying to check adjustment on apparently non adjustable rockers..lol

I just went out to my spare parts box and pulled out all of my original 05 V LS6 springs (that I replaced with dual springs after my cam install) and they all have the same brown paint mark (more or less) on them.

No worries, it's not rust.
