    Anyone use these in the back of the K5? I'm not even sure if they'll fit length wise but was just wondering if anyone's used them and if so, do they sit the rear of the truck higher? Is it a much stiffer ride? A buddy's got a pair for me but before i go through the trouble of finding out that they don't fit or sit my K too high in the back, figured i'd just ask the experienced. If they do work, it would probably help when towing the boat around. That would be a cool. Thanks.

    1 ton springs are 56" and K5's are 52" I believe. I think the 3/4 tons are also 56". I would not put them on esp. the 1 tons because of how stiff they are.

    just to clarify, not all 3/4 tons came with 56" rear springs. Some also had 52's.

    Pretty strange that some 3/4T would have 52 and some 56. Do you know if they changed with different years or different types like - truck, burb, van?

    All 3/4 tons i've ever seen had 56s.

    Some 1/2 tons, like Big 10s and that, have 56s
    Most 1/2 tons have 52s.
