    I was just wondering if anyone has, or can get some measurements from one of the new So Cal rear springs... I know its 2 1/4 wide, But how tall and what does it measure eye to eye? Thanks

    its the same thing as a 35 - 40 front spring. you but it on the back so the shackles dont hit your tires when you hit a bump. i think there spring eye to eye on the rearend goes 42 1/2 (check with them befor you weld ) if you use a 35 - 40 front spring 42 eye to eye on the rearend

    They use a '40 front spring made by Eaton Spring in Detroit. Reverse eye.

    I (for some reason) hate the term "'40 front spring."
    It ain't correct.
    A 1940 Ford front spring is only 2" wide for starters.
    People keep repeating it and it is almost a urban legend of sorts.

    Hi, we'd like to clear something up.
    When they is mentioned, I think you mean So-Cal. But Posies is mentioned in use by someone else, so I'm not quite sure which one this is a response to.
    Either way, Eaton Detroit Spring does not sell anything to either So-Cal or Posie's.
    We do manufacture 40" front springs with Reverse eyes, but any springs from So-Cal or Posie's are not ours.
