    Will these springs fit a 96\" tahoe?

    I have the rear springs that I bought for my blazer that are for sale on Ebay and a guy asked if they will work on a 96 tahoe. He says that the ones on his tahoe are 52"ers. I do not know the brand of the ones I one I have.

    the rear springs on a Tahoe are 63s. Whatever the guy is telling you is simply wrong. Did you happen to mention that all older 1/2 tons are 52s? He probably heard that somewhere, new his is 1/2 ton and put 2 and 2 together. I hate when I come up with 5.

    Keith's brother's late 80s, 1/2 ton 'burb has 56" rear springs as well. The rear springs on my 2 door, 4WD, 95 GMC Yukon (Tahoe) measure about 53". That is probably off a little, but they are definatly NOT 63".

    [/ QUOTE ] Wow I stand corrected. Thats odd. probably due to the short rear bed space, 63s would be too long.
