    I know the front springs on our trucks are shorter the the 2nd gen trucks but are the back springs shorter as well?
    also, if someone has the lengths it would be nice.

    thanks guys

    On my rig the rear springs are the same as the 73up rigs. I put 5"Superlift rear springs that were made for 73up. I think it was 56" or was it 52" ya I think 52 from eye to eye and then 26" from eye to center bolt. Take a tape and measure what you have for sure, eye to eye and then eye to center bolt both ways.
    Duno if 69-71 are different??.....

    69-72 rear springs are the same they are 52" long...... i think 73-87 rear springs (1/2 ones) are 52" also... but not sure if the centering pin is in the same spot as on 69-72 springs..... like burt said get out the ol tape measure and than ask someone with 73-87 springs to measure
