    Is it just me, or are they over 60" long? Does this mean no one make springs for a C2500 Suburban?
    Any help?

    I am not sure cause it has been a while and I know it doesnt seem to make sense but when I used to part out these trucks a few years back I remember the springs being shorter on the sport utilities(subs and tahoes) I would check it out before I bought 64 inch springs !!!! As a note to some wierdness the torsion bars are shorter on the Tahoes also.

    When a friend of mine lifted a cadillac escalade 10" at his shop the rear springs were the same length as my old blazers 52" superlift 8" springs. They sent him some 57" and they didn't fit so he used the 52"s.

    Kinda measured...

    Laid the tape out and I couldn't go more than 60" because of the position I was in. They are longer than 60"...
    Who makes these in a 4-5" spring?
