    Would one of you first Gen guy give me a hand? I need you to measure how long your front leaf springs are and how wide the are. What is the eye to eye length of them installed in you truck? What is the width of the spring? Thanks

    Does it matter how big (arch) they are?
    Basically, mine arent stock, if it matters to you.

    The eye to eye length should be the same as stock. The difference is the amount of arch in the spring. I just need the measure straight from the center of one spring bolt to the center of the other spring bolt. Thanks
