    Anyone know what the stock leaf spring rate is 56" rear leaf springs? I have ten leaves in my pack, but if you don't know leaf specifics that's OK, just needs to be for 56"ers.

    Sorry, I'm no help.. I did see a chart of different spring rates at some point, but no idea where it is/was...

    I am curious as to this too... I need to pick up some stock rear 56"s for my setup, and saw the stock replacement, cheapies over at JC Whitney where listed a 8 leafers.. I'm curious as to the different 56's available, spring rates, etc..

    Maybe I can hunt down some info today during wiring breaks....

    That's be awesome. I haven't had any luck searching, but maybe I'm not looking in the right places. BTW, I was reading your dash thread last night, it's sweeeeet.

    Hmmm, good ideas. Thanks for the link. I was beginning to think no one had ever wondered this before. Maybe I'll pull out the scale and do some adding and subtracting, if no one gives me the answer. Or better yet, I'll head over to a friends house with a weight set, and that should make the adding part easier. ;)
