    Question on drop leaf springs

    Are the drop leaf springs different on 95 thru 2004 Blazers??

    Belltech gives different ones for the 95-97 (blt 5956) and 98-04 (blt 5964).

    Wouldn't they all be the same length, since it is the same body style? Or am wrong???

    Thanks

    ive been under a 99 recently and to me it all looks the same as far as two doors go except the second gens are box'd all the way back. But if belltech lists them as different part numbers there has to be something different
