    Does your truck have the SF or FF 14 bolt?

    True...

    The 52's are more common than the 56's.

    SF didnt even exist yet in 77, its FF all the way, this is one of the very few trucks ive seen with 52" springs, never seen a 3/4 ton with only 52" and most all the 1/2 tons i have had to date were 56" with 8 leaves, 1/2 tons like Big10 and such, 6200lb gvw
    they sure really skimped out on the 3/4 tons didnt they ? especially in the 80s....

    wierd.......
