    I was looking for the actual width of the rear spring itself. It should be somewhere in the 2-3 inch range.

    the width of the stock front springs is 2.5" at center pin. but goes wider a bit to the ends around 3" wide.

    rear is all 2.5 wide gm trucks 73-up. most ford 4x4s were 3" in the rear. the ford 2x4 were 2.5 on most.
