    I need the following measurement on anyone who has 63/64 inch leaf springs ON their truck, other useful info would be if it is a truck or a blazer. Loaded or unloaded. What I need is the bold line with the arrow pointing to it. Trying to set ride heigth on a truck I am working on

    I don't need length measurment I need height measurement. I want to know how much the springs are going to squat. I already have the springs and the mounts just need to know where to mount the spring hanger and shackle hanger
    Once again I need the measurement that is the bold line on the pic. I need the measurement with weight in the truck

    Every spring is differant. depends on your setup. The weight of our rigs is all differant. Depends on if you got 1/2 or 3/4 ton springs, 2 or 4wd. The amount of shackle angle you use will change the amount of squat.

    Sorry about that too, i just saw the arrow and assumed...:doah:

    Set them on the ground then jack the truck up , block everything and set it down on them , very safely or not depending on your redneck tendentcies.

    Unfortunately right now all the truck is, is a frame in the back. It will have a bed a blazer gas tank by the cab a spare tire carrier shock mounts cooler mount toolbox both batterys and other stuff. This is why in my first post I wanted the height of trucks that had the springs on them preferebly loaded
