I just switched out coil springs on my 1/2 ton C10 62 Chevrolet that had been lowered about an 1" to 1 1/2" with the springs still intact on the truck. I replaced the coil springs with supposedly stock ones from our host, http://www.classicparts.com/1960-72-Coil-Springs-Rear/productinfo/74-481/ and could not fit the shocks up to the rear axle. The shocks I took off were between 21" to 22". It was difficult to find anything longer than those..Bob at NAPA had to go through 60 boxes of shocks to find 23" in length, to fit on. From my research, the original shocks were 19" fully extended. Can anyone shed some light on this? Everything is put back together and the ride is pretty good anywho.
