    If you have 3 leafs you only need to remove the bottom one and install the add aleaf they work ok but stiffer than it was I went w/a 4"lift and got rid of the add a leaf

    I havent checked the lenghts. I got them with my last truck, which was an 88 GMC Jimmy (fullsize of course) and never did anything with them.They have been out in the garage for a while and btw the back set of springs has 6 in the pack and they are rough countrys.
