    Are half ton 63" springs different if the truck was 2wd vs 4wd? Looking at buying some springs from a guy that pulled them from a 2wd, and he said they have one less leaf than a 4wd spring. Is there any know problems with using a 2wd spring instead of a 4wd spring? Thanks.

    the more leafs the more load. and the arch has a bit to do with it also. the 88-ups are diffrent hangers on the front point to make up the dirrence.
