    Hey, I know yall are going to think that I am mentally handicapped, but I tried searching and couldn't find the answer. Exactly how do I determine if my K20 burban has 52's or 56's (because I may be able to make enough money to order a Rough country 4" lift soon with rear springs...) I'm sure the lift will ride stiff as a board, but hey, it's everything I need for under $500.
    thanks,
    James

    spring measurements are meant to be taken at ride height along the main leaf, not from eye to eye. Though of course its gonna get you close enough that you can figure it out.

    thats my understanding...

    You should measure along the curve of the spring, or eye to eye when the spring is completely straight.
