    I put on the 0 rate add a leaves today, and they worked great. The center pin was the same as my stock one, they fit everything fine. They are completely compatable with the 88-98 IFS half tons. I don't know what the difference is in the heavier trucks other than increased spring rate, so I can't say about those.

    Works great man, I already posted about them on the ORC/Chevy page.

    I took a bunch of pictures, and I will send copies to you when I get them developed. Just like Steve's installation on this site. No problems.

    I hope this is not a sample of one ! One 88-98 that is !
    Glad to here the feedback, and that it working on your sample of one.

    How much variation do you is possible on a simple leaf spring design? I can't think of a single reason that it wouldn't work...

    Well considering no one makes different springs or blocks for lifting the rear of our trucks, I doubt there is a difference. Again, I don't know if these will work with the 3/4 ton and 1 ton IFS trucks, but I know they work with the 1/2 ton and 3/4 ton Light Duty trucks. I know GM changed the length of the springs, but why bother changing the spring center pin? Just a lot of money to waste by doing that.

    Trusty, okay, I got the beaver, but what's with the turtle?

    Executioner...I understand what you're saying, but my point was the only variables really are the center pin size and perch/spring width. If these are the same as the K5 I can't see them not working. Unless I'm missing something. Maybe I'm just over simplifying...
