  • 74 J10 Springs

    The front springs on my J10 are sagging so badly that a small rut or bump in a field will cause the axle to smack the frame. What was the stock front height in 1974?

    The front and rear spring packs in this truck only have two leaves. I am pretty sure this is original judging from the looks. Was this an option? It has a GVW of 5600 if that helps.

      I'm always forgetting the year spread for the rear of the trucks.

      Are those rear springs on posts there Chris P.?

      I know there was a 2 leaf front package but don't know much about it.
      Never would have dreamed there was a 2 leaf rear post setup.

        I am at virginia tech and my truck is at home two hours away, but I am pretty sure the rear springs are post mount.
