    51\" on the \'82 and 52\" on the \'79 ?

    measured eye to eye on rear springs of the 82 K10 shorty and on the 79 K10 longbed and i get 51" on the '82 and 52" on the '79 ?

    is that right ?


    if i use the rear-most rear 2wd C20 hangers on front-most end of my 79 K10 rear packs then i could getr 1 3/4" lift, but only if i can find some front most hangers with same amount of length increase.

    ive got measurement of 5 1/4" of arch height from centerline of eye bolts straight down to bottom of bottom leaf in the pack. all hangers and shackle are same on the 82 as on the 79, guess cant get any lift from using anything off 81 on the 79, i just wanted ot see for myself to make sure is all.

    the 3/4 ton 2wd lweaves are 56" long, the hangers are different lengths, shackle same length though. i think 3 7/8" center to center

    You need to measure from eye to eye following the arch of the spring. Both the 79 and 82 should be 52".
