RE poor instructions 4.5\" lift

well i was looking at an RE catalog and noticed part numbers for front and rear springs. #1454 front and #1455 rear. i remember looking at springs and they looked identical and the instructions said nothing about a difference nor a part number. i ran out and looked- sure enough there is a painted number on each spring. i have #1454 on front and #1455 on rear! lucky or what? there is a difference- front has 5 leaves and rear has 6 leaves. is this correct? i can't believe RE didn't note this in the instructions for laymen like myself! man do i feel lucky and another lesson learned![img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
