    I need to know the eye to eye length of 69-72 K5 springs while loaded (in the truck) or unloaded (not in truck). What is the width of the springs? Anyone with a 69-72 mind running outside and getting a measurement for me? Thanks alot.

    Re: Spring question

    Harley , I read in the early trucks forum that Triaged runs 73 and up springs on his first gen truck. Wouldn't hurt to ask him /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    I have a pair off a 71 K10 Suburban leaning against a tree in the backyard--will an "off the truck" measurement help you at all?. /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif
