    Alright I'm working on the S10, going to make the rest of the front crossmember that the front springs will bolt to, I need to know spring pad spacing though. Billavista's bible says 31.5" but when I measure it by hand and eyeball(not accurate of course) it seems to be a lot more like 32.5(same as a Chevy). So which is correct? Or is it something else? This is a 1979 High Pinion Dana 60.

    thats what I will build it to, if it is either 32.5 or 31.5 the .5" won't be a big deal.
