    52" rear springs will work as will a raised steering arm and/or dropped pitman arm. frame bushings, shackles.

    But not the front springs, 73+ are 3" too long.

    For some reason the only vehicles with a K were the 5s(even 2wds), the chevy 1/2ton and 3/4 ton 4wds still had a C10 or C20 badge, the vin/model had K.
