    I keep hearin people say they got 56" springs or 52". Do i need to measure something or does superlift make a specific size?

    also i have 35x12.50's and they rub at full articulation when the tires are turned. I plan to run 36 or 37's with a 1" body and 1" shackle flip to fit 36 or 37's... Are they gonna rub or is it backspacing?

    you should have 52" rear springs. 56" rear springs appeared on heavier GVWR trucks. That is of course if your K5 wasn't modified.

    measure the rear spring eye to eye, bushing center to bushing center. That will tell you. All K5's came with 52's, 3/4 and 1 ton's came with 56's.

    They might rub some, prolly back spacing.
