    To get my spring length do I check along the curve of the spring, or do I go directly fom eye to eye with no load on it?

    Also, because I can be lazy sometimes:D, what length spring is on the rear of a '73 'burb?

    Thanks again for the info.:bow:

    center of eye to center of eye along the curve.

    on a burb they had either 52 and 56's

    56 are more common on the 3/4 tons
