    I'm pretty sure it's 2 front and 4 rear. I can check for sure this evening though if nobody else has chimed in by then.

    2front and 5 rear including the overload.
    I had a couple and they were stock.
    I have seen some with 5+overload rear when it came from factory with a towing kit.

    Another thing about those years: 73-75, the fronts were tapered leaves both in width and thickness, the center was thick and narrow and the ends where the bushings go wider and slimmer.
    I don't know till what year that went on but I know my 84 wasn't like that.
    those springs were much nicer riding.
    I have yet to see an aftermarket spring made like this.
