Can someone on this site share the width measurement for the leaf spring at the front mount. Also the measurement from the center of the bushing eye to the leaf center bolt. Trying to convert a 54 chevy hdtp to open driveline. Have a 56 rearend and looking to see if the center bolt on the leafs is further back on the 55 leafs as to not have to drill the perches to center the wheels in the opening. I have to buy springs any way for previous owner de-arched the orig.54 springs with a fire wrench between
the rearend and rear hanger. thank you for your time and effort

I don't have any measurements but a 55 and a 56 are exactly the same from the factory.
