Re: wagoneer springs?
well in the 74 model year the wheel base of the wags got reduced from 110" to 109". to do this the center bolt of ea spring, that is used to rest the diff tube spring pad on, is moved INBOARD. ud have to take the spring off to make sure. also, the front spring shackles r made of thin metal and r 1 piece. 63-73 wags have thick material 3 piece shackles. also, the 74 wags have a front sway bar. 63-73 wags did not. the rear shackle on 63-73 wags is mounted to the frame via a large dia pin. the 74 wags have a welded cup that the shackle sits in.
try this. take a measuring tape. run the tape from 1 end of the spring to the other. take that number. cut it in half. now does the pos of the diff tube sit EXACTLY that distance from the ends of ea spring end?
