Leaf spring to bump stop dimensions

Hi all,

Looking for some help with spring replacement.

I've been doing some searching but haven't found much on leaf spring / spring block to bump stop dimensions.

I have unknown leaf springs right now, 3 leafs upfront and 5 leafs rear.

Front:
3 leafs
Measurements from top of u-bolt block to tip of bump stop is 2.125"

Rear:
5 leafs
And a 3/4" block and the u-bolt nuts are maxed out to the end of the u-bolt threads.
Measurements from top of axle tube to tip of bump stop is 4"

I want to replace what I have because the leafs are shifting and my bushings are shot...really bad...really really bad...so while I'm doing the springs I'll switch to ORD shackles and bushings.

If anyone knows of better measurements to give to help I can take pictures and measurements.

From what I've seen I think I might have a sagging 2" lift in it now.

Thank you,
Richard
Pictures until I get more can be found in my tag line link.
Actually OD of tire is 32 1/2"
