    I'm going to pick up a 14 bolt this weekend. I was wondering if the springs from an '86 1/2 ton p/u would be the same width apart as my '73 blazer. The perches are moved for a half ton. I think that's enough info. I hope.

    Yes, they are the same. The measurement is like 42.5" eye to eye...or somewhere near that #. But 73' 1/2 ton K5 is same as (upto) 87' 1/2 ton P/U.
