Re: how many leafs in a k20

Our 70 GMC K2500 had 5+1 on the bottom plus another set of 5 overloads on top of the main spring.

We have since removed and went to Skyjacker Soft Ride 4" lift and it has 5 +1.

Re: how many leafs in a k20

My '72 K20 has AALs and Hellwig overloads.... the original spring packs are 5 leafs.

It probably varied depending on the GVWR of the truck. Can't recall the numbers but mine is a relatively low rating (hence the overloads).

We also had a 68 3/4T K20 that had the 3 leaf suspension. But each leaf was 1/2" thick!

The ONLY time that thing rode smooth was with (3) 1000 LB feeder calves in the back!
