    Hi all. I am getting ready to do a shackle flip on my suburban, and am wondering if the 56" rear springs on my suburban are factory? I was going to replace them with some 3/4 ton springs but these are in great shape. so these are factory right? when did they start putting them on 1/2 ton suburbans?
    Thanks

    I had a 91 burb with factory 56" rears, when I bought my lift for it I know you had to specify which rear springs so I would guess chevy had been doing it that way for a while
