1975 Leaf springs
 
So does anyone know what year Chevy leafs I can toss on my '75 Wagoneer? Who has done this?
I've read 63'' and 58'', but what year trucks? I was planning on keeping my main leafs and just putting together my own pack but I work crazy hours and don't have the time (a short week is 60 hours) to comb through junk yards with a measuring tape.

Thanks!

Thanks Tad! I promised to get my Green Machine out in the Gila this summer, and the miniature trail run during the Enchilada finished any spring the springs had. Now it's sitting in my driveway looking like it's turning into a lowrider. Just needs gold Daytons

Lol, it's still a good looking rig.
So as you do some reading you will discover that the 74-75 rigs are the hard ones to deal with when it comes to the rear bushing sizes.
When I am off this phone later I will try to dig up the post where Tom from HellCreek and I had found what we thought were a few options.
Not sure if it went anyplace after the discussion.

Awesome thanks Tad! The '75 is really fun and the AC blows cold- gotta make good use of it!

Still not sure but I bet I still have those test springs.
I have some 4", "74-"91 front springs here also that will need a home.

I'll be in Silver at least twice before Ouray.
Might be there for a bit of spring break but it will be during the week.
