    Sugestion:
    Buy a tape measure.

    FYI: 56" springs only came on 3/4 and 1-ton trucks.

    Hey that's like I tell people on the CB. "Buy a map". But you measure center of spring eye to center of eye along the spring.

    If we are talking about a K/5 then they are 52"s.They were the only leaf spring offered in the '73-91 Blazers.But it would help if you gave us more info on the subject.BTW I run 56" in my K/5.
