    Does anybody know the rates and legths of chevy van G 10/20/30 rear springs? Are there any differences in lengths/rates between those three? What about dodge vans? I just cant find used truck springs here so im hoping to hear that they are somewhat identical to vans...

    different..

    I have an 81 G10 van--its springs are the same length as my 79 C10 longbed,(just eye balled them,dont know exact lengths)--but they are narrower!--I had a decent set of pickup springs,but they wont fit in the hangers or between the U-bolt plates..--too wide!..the van springs might fit a puckup,but they would have 1/2" of slop in the shackles and U-bolt plates..I'd say keep looking for truck springs. :crazy: ..
