    Lets see, 52" springs, 31.5 on one side and 29 on the other. 29 plus 31.5 is pretty dang close to 52 don't you say?

    You have right side spring on backwards. And being that 6" superlift springs have the shims built in you have some nasty bending going on under that rig that will ruin those springs real quick like if you don't fix it.

    I've heard of the shims getting turned, so it's always a good idea to measure before install. 29+31=60,

    You can't put a 52" spring on backwards. The center pins are centered. I bet one or both of yours are broken. Take the spring plates off one at a time and lower the axle to inspect.
