    Anyone know the spring rate of say the factory rear springs on a late K5 ? I know ive seen a chart on aftermarket lift springs, and now as i shop for new springs need to gain some knowledge. Also... whats the deal on 52" and 56" springs ? Advantages to one over the other ? Or does it depend on whats under your rig ? Thanks. TORI

    Good Q on the rates...

    As to 52 vs 56, 56 will give a little better flex and ride. However, they cost more than 52" and you'll have to work some magic on hte hangers on your K5 to get them to bolt on.
