Dan did some research and found out that the front lift springs for '73-'87 K5s were substantially softer than those for the '69-'72 models. The later-model springs bolted up, 4-inch Tough Country springs in this case, but also required a longer shackle to be used. The '73-'87 front springs are longer than those for '69-'72 models. Rancho RS 5000s bolt to the stock mounts and perform decently both on the pavement and on the trail.
