    Would a set of springs from a truck work in a Blazer? If not, why?

    Just trying to figure something out. Thanks

    As long as they are out of an 1/2 ton P/U,they should fit.Bring a tape measure and the K/5's are 52".3/4 tons springs(MOST) were 56".....great for some extra flex(but you have to move the rear shackle mounts.

    Ok. Thanks. That widens my search area. I'm guessing the suburban's should fit too then?

    Do be carefull on some trucks because the springs sit a little lower. I was given a set of k10 springs and they sat about 2 inches lower than the stock springs from the blazer. Food for thought.

    Those springs sitting 2" lower was probably from sag. Pickups tend to get overloaded a little easier than the blazers /forums/images/icons/ooo.gif
