    Maybe someone can help me with this question... what is the height of stock rear springs (unloaded)? When measured from the ground to the spring bolt (upside down)

    Thanks!

    Here's my measurement on the stock springs I took off my '72 Blazer (I can only assume they are the originals.) 7 3/8" from the floor to the top (bottom when upside down) leaf. Didn't measure to the bolt, if it were cut to a different length than yours, it might not do you much good. I snapped a couple of pics. Does this help?
