    New member here. I had a question about the quality of JC Whitney's stock replacement springs. Has anyone used them and can you comment about them. Are there any other options for heavy duty replacements (stock).
    I have a 91' K5. My goal is to keep it fairly stock with a few updates such as heavy duty springs, soft top, tires/wheels, as well as some creature comforts.

    Thanks in advance.

    I've used the single tough coutry helper spring for the front of my F250 to level it up to the rear height. It worked great, but it's pretty hard to f up a single spring. Anyway, I just ordered a single helper spring for the rear of my Chevy to have it sit up 1" higher. It hasn't arrived yet, but I can imagine that it will work as advertised. Wish I could give you more info.

    Someone here used JCW springs for his 52" swap. Try searching with "JC Whitney", "52", and "spring swap"...
