1989 GMC V3500 Leaf Spring Advice Needed

    I have a 1989 GMC V3500 that needs new rear leaf springs. The originals are broken at the shackle. I have been checking everywhere on the Internet, but keep coming up empty handed. A major and reputable supplier has been helping but has hit a dead end.

    Main spring is 12 leafs.
    56" from center eye to eye on the shackles.
    2 1/2" wide.

    Helper spring is 5 leafs and 2 1/2" wide

    Altogether, the thickness of the 2 packs is just shy of 8".

    All my resources show a pack with 12 leafs has to be 4" wide, not 2 1/2".

    The closest I can find is a 9/1 pack.

    Any help or suggestions?

    Any good spring shop can make them

    I want to say the eye to eye and 2½ is the same as a SuperDuty.
