I'm pretty sure it's 2 front and 4 rear. I can check for sure this evening though if nobody else has chimed in by then.

can some one tell me what the stock count on leaf springs are for the front and rear of a 75 k5 is.

2front and 5 rear including the overload.
I had a couple and they were stock.
I have seen some with 5+overload rear when it came from factory with a towing kit.

Another thing about those years: 73-75, the fronts were tapered leaves both in width and thickness, the center was thick and narrow and the ends where the bushings go wider and slimmer.
I don't know till what year that went on but I know my 84 wasn't like that.
those springs were much nicer riding.
I have yet to see an aftermarket spring made like this.
