    i just need to understand the actual difference from stock to lift spring packs

    difference is in overall length or increased arch(which is in some way related to overall length of the leaves im sure) ?

    and whne springs are at rest and uninstalled are they supposed to have eye to eye measurement thats same as eye to eye measurement actually on the truck(zero preload) or ?


    im doing research and need to learn all i can

    any links to any info would be great

    thanks

    Go to the bottom of the page at this link... CK5 Technical

    Basically, you will find there are 3 factors. Free Arch, Number of Leaves, and Spring Rate.

    I could tell you what my rear springs are, but I already scrapped my fronts. My rear are sitting in the garage. Of course, they wouldn't be like new....
