Composite Leaf Spring Dimensions

Question:

How do you measure the composite leaf springs?

Answer:

Diagram of composite leaf spring

To measure the arch, place the spring on a flat surface with the arch up. Measure from the floor to the bottom of the spring (‘H’ in the diagram), and then subtract 3/4″ from the total length. For the Chrysler the overall length (eye to eye) is 53 7/8″ and the pin to eye length is 20 1/2″ (‘L’ in the diagram). For the Chevrolet, the overall length (eye to eye) is 54″ and the pin to eye length is 25″ (‘L’ in the diagram).
