Could someone tell me the leaf measurements on a stock Front F350 leaf from the spring eye bolt to the center pin? I'm trying to do some calculations and this will help alot. The distance from the front spring eye bolt to the center pin on my Bronco rear leaf is roughly 25". Thank you . NORM

Ya know Norm now that you say 25" I could swear the F350 leafs are 28 to 28.25".

24"? Damn I like Keith's numbers better. I don't have to stretch the front out as much his way. :grin:

No, you'd have to stretch the front end less with my measurement. It's 24" from the FRONT eye to the center pin. I didn't measure from the pin to the rear eye, but I can.

Norm was considering using Bronco leafs up front to gain some wb (at my suggestion). But I also cautioned him I could be wrong, even tho Bronco springs have more center pin offset (I believe), it's also a longer spring which negates much of the offset difference.

So, it appears Norm would actually lose 1" of wb by using Bronco springs up front.

Yeah but I'll bet the SOB is gonna flex like a sumunabish. Especially if I go with the narrower Chevy D60 and 4.5" narrower perches.

Eh, you know... I'd just use the 2.5" Chevy springs. I think I have dimensions for them around here somewhere. If you're going to be fabbing everything anyway, you have more options for rate and ride height with the 2.5" stuff.
