    Are the leaf springs from a truck the same as on a Blazer?
    Also, how much stiffer are 3/4 ton springs than stock Blazer springs?

    Thanks

    Same size, probably. Same weight rating, probly not. The Blazer is much heavier in the rear than a PickUp.

    I have suburban rear leaf springs on my truck and they have a 2850lb. rating and the stock blazer springs have a 1850lb. rating. I got them to help with towing. Pretty stiff but I don't care. I think all chevy front springs are the same size but the rear are different. Some are 52" and some are 56". Somebody correct me if I'm wrong.

    yep alto of Chevys have 56" rear springs and 52" 52" being the most common. I run into this all the time at the parts counter. That is why we also state in our ads 52" rear prings included. Subs are known to throw curve balls often.
