    No...

    The ideal springs are:
    86-96 F-150's (the newer the better)
    leaves are 2.5" wide (carefull as some came w/ 3" wide springs)
    57" from eye to eye along the arch of the spring
    25" from front eye to center bolt
    leaf pack has 4 teflon padded leaves and 1 O/L (it's common to find a pack which has 3 leaves and 1 O/L - but the 4 leaf pack is mo' betta!) /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    I think Tony was looking for F-150 springs, stumbled onto some early Bronco's.... and hoped they were the same thing. /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif
