    Best place is a junk yard or someone parting out a Ford. Head out to the pick and pull with a tape measure. Ford used 57" springs in quite a few applications and over alot of years from what I have heard.

    Its been a while since I knew all of my 57 tech... but if I remember correctly you want them from around a 87-96 F150 2wd... and get the 4 leaf pack, not the 3. I think mine were out of a 94 2wd F150, and I got them at the bone yard for 20 bucks each, I had to pull them... no biggie.

    I think it's 89-96. Definitely hold out for the 4 leaf pack. Even the 4 leaf packs are stupidly soft. Do watch out you don't snag a set that are 3" wide, you'll just be creating a bunch more work for yourself.
