    What is the width of spring pad spacing on a 1 ton 14 bolt? I'm thinking about moving rear springs inboard to right below the frame to simplify mounting on my 3/4 eliptical setup and wondering if I could mount the new spring pads without having to remove the old ones.

    For your 84 K5 the 1/2 ton & 3/4 ton spring pad spacing is 42.5" center to center
    The 1 ton 14FF is 40" center to center. You will have to remove the old one first before welding on new ones because they are too close together.
