    Is there two lengths or rear spring on the 1969-72 blazer 52" and 56" right?
    What is the proper way to measure the rear springs a strait line eye to eye or follow the curve of the spring? do you have to remove it from the truck? or does it just need the tension off?

    Pretty sure that 73-91 Blazers are all 52", and the 56"s only came on *some* 3/4's and 1-tons.

    I do NOT know about 1st gen (67/69-72) trucks.

    You measure along the arch, eye to eye, and it's not exact, so you can do it on the truck loaded.
