    Who has 2.5\" Front spring son their Blazer? Stupid PO!

    I just figured out why my front bushings keep cracking...

    I never noticed the PO put 2.5" springs on the front of my blazer....it looks like the bushings *sort of* compensate, but I break shackle bolts constantly. Anyone else running this setup? I'm defanitly considering a spring swap now...

    What is the front-center pin distance on a stock set of front springs? I'm thinking these are some funky rear spring pack he hillbilly'd up front.

    thanks for any help!

    It was my understanding that stock springs taper from 3" to 2.5 in the middle, and all aftermarket springs were 2.5" the whole legnth with bushings to take up the slack /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif
