    I'm in the process of building another 4x4. I've now run into a leaf spring problem I have'nt dealt with yet. During removal of a broken rear spring stack under the main leaf on my 79 K10, I found the main leaf also broke. Can I use the main leaf from a C10 or even a Blazer? Thanks,<br>Jim

    If its the same size you can use it, You might need to change both sides, Need to keep the same height. I prefer to get new springs when I do this type of work, I seem to have less problems in the long run. Don't forget to check the bushings in the end of the springs if you go with used ones, Now would be the time to change them.<br>Good Luck.
