    I just measured my spring pads center to center in the front and rear. The front came out to approx 32" and the rear came out to approx 42.5", I didnt realize there was that much of a difference in the width. I knew there would be a difference, but not 10.5" I figured 7-8". Am I crazy or does this sound right?

    Yep. Thats about right. The frame actually curves inward under the cab as you go forward. Where at in OKC are you? I live in eastern OK county, work in Del City.

    The front springs have to be much further inboard to allow clearance for the tires when they're turned at full lock.
