    I need to lift my 76 k10 but my budget is nery tight right now. Will my 6" lift front springs from my 72 k5 fit the 76?? I'd measure myself but I'm too lazy /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif

    At the very least the front springs are shorter for the 1st gen. Ask me how I know. /forums/images/graemlins/doah.gif Good luck to ya in the future.

    1st gen front springs are about 3" shorter than 2nd gen springs.

    Rear springs are the same if you have rear lift springs they will swap.
