    Just curious...
    I am looking for some leaf spring measurements.
    Blazer: 52"??
    Short box GM pickup: 52"??
    Long box GM pickup: 56"??

    I have a friend that needs some springs for his shortbed 81 GM pickup. He says that he only can use springs from a Blazer, not a truck. Is he right? What other springs can he use? I have a set out of a 3/4T 4x4 long box, but he thinks he cant use them.
    Thanks
    Mike
