Funny you should mention that. The reason I have an idea how just low my
4kq is, is because I also have an '84 4k. The 4k sits at least 2 inches
higher than the '86 4kq in the back. Two point though, the '84 has less
weight in the back (no driveline) and it gets about a 1/2 inch lift from
gas charged struts that I installed. Still, I bet the springs _are_
stronger in the '84 4k.
