    Hey guys, I have the opportunity to get some 63" rear springs from a stock mid 90s chevy for free, and got a couple questions. I was just wondering if they are worth getting, If anyone is using them, where are they using them, front or rear, and with what set up. Also how well they work. Tried searching didnt turn up much on 63". Any info would be greatly appreciated Thanks guys -Troy-

    that should get you started. i ve got them on my truck right now (actually they measure out at 64's, they are from an 05 2wd crewcab). for the right people they work very well. i will be swapping mine out for 56's just because i dont like the way the tire sits in the wheelwell, and requires other mods on a k5. i think they would work better on a truck. the last link there shows moving the front mount forward, which i would recomend on a k5 to keep the wheelbase the same/or close. an antiwrap bar should be part of the swap as well.
