    They are REAR squarebody chevy springs.  ;) Chevy doesn't use a rear block either.

    The 52" & 56" chevy spring have a lot more flex. You can run a stock 56" spring with my hangers  & have a 4" lift with NO block.


    The stock 52" spring we use in the front with my hangers will give you a 5"+ lift.

    Does that help?
