11.Since Fabworx recommends using Atlas springs, that's what we used. Unlike most SAS kits, the Fabworx kit utilizes front leaves that are six inches longer than a typical '73-to-'87 leaf spring (three inches longer in the front and the rear, keeping the center pin in the same basic location). This discourages some cheapskates that would rather use a SAS kit that they can bolt an old, rusty, used leaf spring into, but we liked the idea of having longer leaves for a better ride and increased travel.
