    I bought a set of 8" rear springs from a member that bought them from you about a year ago.
    Part # TCI 2218, they have never been on a rig.
    They are supposed to be for a 2nd gen K5 but when I measured eye to eye I got 48" instead of 52"
    Is this normal?
    Will they flatten out to 52"? 4" seems to a heck of a stretch.

    The 52" would be measured along the main leaf, it's the dimension when it's flattened out. 4" isn't too bad, that's kind of a tall spring. You may find the main leaf is a bit longer than 52", that's typical with a deep arch spring.

    Thanx
    I was measuring them for the spring rate and then seen that
    and was wondering if I had the right ones.
    I guess when I go to put them on I will see how to get it to go in.
