Pitch blocks on front springs? Look like rear springs to me
I might have posted the wrong pics I'm keeping the rears for my 72.
Nope. Those pics show the front springs. I know cuz I have the exact same springs on my back porch and they look exactly like those.
If they were rear springs, there would be more leaves and a flatter overload on the bottom pack.
Ok... That's what I thought but I'm tired and brain dead right now.
I checked and these are all the trucks they will fit.
73 - 87 1/2 & 3/4 Ton Pickup 4WD; 77 - 87 1 Ton; 88 - 91 Blazer - Jimmy - Full-Size; 73 - 87 Blazer - Jimmy Full - Size; 88 - 91 Suburban 1/2 & 3/4 Ton 4WD; 73 - 87 Suburban 1/2 & 3/4 Ton 4WD
How much would you want to ship them to 43452? might be interested if shipping dosent kill.
I don't even know how much they weigh. If I can find that out I"ll check the shipping.
How wide are these springs? I'm redoing the front suspension on my 1956 Chevy 4x4 and reversing the shackles. I was actually looking for 4" springs, but 6" might work. I'd be willing to pay $120 for them and I'd pick them up, or have my brother who works in SLC pick them up.
yeah I was wondering about those angled blocks...aren't those normally only on the rear? If they are on the front won't it mess up your steering geometry by kicking the yoke up and the front down?
yes but it saves your pinion angle ( easier on the drive line ) and if you turn your knuckles you get your caster back. (Which is what was done on the truck these came off of) or you just deal with less caster. Scout's came stock with 0 (zero) caster.
Most 6" and higher front springs have those to adjust pinion angle. Rears have them too, but the fact it has no overload leaf gives it away...as was said in an earlier post.
Those are called shims. They can be helpful on trucks like ours. Lots of tall lifts have them installed from the manufacturer.
yeah I know...I have them on the rear of my truck b/c I didn't have the time to cut and weld on new spring perches at a different angle...I just hadn't ever noticed them on the front before...
I've only seen shims on front springs of 6" and taller. On rear springs, 4" and taller.
I'll have to look into it...my 8" front springs don't have anything...
