    my stock front springs on the blazer (69) have 3 leaves and the parts truck 72k20 has 2 leaves. did this have one removed or are they different for a reason? i would think the k20 would need the extra spring leaf for whatever. all the leaves in both packs are basically the same thickness.

    thanks

    yeah you would think, but alot of the 70s k series also got only 52" rear packs and also tiny short radiators and so forth


    i have no explanation as to what GM was doing through the 70s, however i had a 77 K20 and it had the 3 leaf up front with HD chassis equip, but had the 52" rears.
