    I have seen some that looked like 2" all the way up to 3". I think Marv said for the Springer set up that when you look for springs make sure to get the 2 1/2" and not the 3" ones off a Ford. So there are deffinately different widths.

    I see what you were saying... but Chevy is pretty standard with 2 1/2 inch springs.

    Thanks for the quick help.
