    I think he's trying to get longer springs on his first gen...

    yes no

    Sorry dude, I had the guy I gave my second gen springs to on the phone last night and forgot to get measurments for ya... I took them off my truck because they hammered the frame....something I still have to fix...

    I had a set of '77 4-inch lift springs set beside my BDS 4-inch springs for my '69. If I had shortened the '77 springs 2" at the rear they would have been the same.
