52 vs 56 in leaf springs K10 burb

Really wanted a 2.5 softride but now looking at 4 inch spring front and rear spring only kits. They list 52 inch springs for half ton. I thought they had 56 and blazers were 52. This will be more of a pavement queen so ride quality is important.

Also, was gonna run 35ís 15x10 wagon wheels and also have a set of mickey Thompson slot mags 16x10 that I was gonna put 33ís on. Will the wheel gaps be terrible with 33s vs 35s with 4 inch lift?

Thank you

Pickups and Blazers both use 52" rears. As far as gap goes it's all in what you like.I personally like 4" with 33s and 6" with 35s.

your wheel gap will be fine with 33" and 4" lifts... Honestly it is more useable and is a better look in certain ways.

I am going with 33s on my 4" lift
