What is the factory length of scout rear springs? Mine have sagged to the point of them being flat as a board and im looking for FACTORY dimensions, of when they did have arch in them. It's a 1977 super scout II, i know that different models came with different springs as far as spring rates...but im pretty sure the lengths are all the same. I searched.

thanks
pat

my bad yall, SSII:flipoff2: hey the VIN plate is NOT in the door jam, so thats all the comfirmation i need for my scout to be super to me:p Well, im in the process of swapping in a rear 70 and front 60, TBI 350 blah blah blah...and i am putting f150 springs in the rear, so i was just gonna see how long my scout rear springs are *supposed* to be and then cut off the rear hangers and weld them back to where the BRAND NEW f150 springs are gonna be. Kinda like if scout rear springs were 50 inches long BRAND NEW, and the spring hangers were 55 inches apart, thats a 5 inch difference. And NEW, f150 springs are 57 inches long, so i would just make the spring hangers 62 inches apart. I would do it this way b/c the new springs haven't come in, and my scout rear springs are flat as a board....i know it's a VERY VERY odd way to do things, im cracked out at times.

peace
1977 *SSII*

I'm not certain, but I believe it's Soft Safari. You mean Hooper doesn't know? My Scout has doors and a hard top. :flipoff2: :flipoff2:

What are you going to do with your shot rear springs? I could use some stock leaves for a custom spring pack I am putting together.

Nope. Hooper does not know. But, Hooper knows that an plastic model of the SSII from the late 70's referred to it in print as a
*Super Scout II*. I have also read at least on magazine article that called it a Safari Scout. I know that John Glancy leans to Super Scout II, (hence www.superscoutspecialists). EVERYTHING I have been able to find from IH, ads, line sheets, dealer specs, etc, all say SSII with no clarification. I lean toward that. It didn't *mean* anything. There were a lot of SS vehicles out at that time, and I think IH jumped on the bandwagon.

But, as far as I have been able to ascertain, there is no FACT about what it means. Only speculation.

i thought on other vehicles the SS stood for Super Sport.

having not closely looked at an SSII, does it have the scoutII emblem or sticker on the tailgate? or does it say SSII there instead?
