Question about rear leaf springs on '76 J-20 Ambulance
I'm just beginning the process of doing a shackle flip on the rear of my '76 J-20 Ambulance and have gotten the axle out and the springs off. My right spring pack has 5 leaves and the left has 4. I don't know if this was stock for J-20 trucks, or something the body builder people did when they loaded up the back with ambulance stuff. Does anybody know what was normal for that year? Also, the rear box has long since had all the ambulance stuff removed, and the truck sits about 1" higher on the side with the extra spring. I'm thinking about removing the extra leaf and reassembling. Anyone see any problem with that?
