I have a set of relatively new front springs and I don't know what they were built for? A small block or big block? Is there any way to tell?

Thanks

Are they GM or aftermarket? If GM, is the tag still on them?

Ed, I am guessing aftermarket. There are no tags.

I replaced the springs that were in my small block when I bought it. Pretty sure those were big block springs. That's 40 years ago. They had a free height of 16.5 inches. The small block springs I just replaced them with are 14.98 inches. I know spring dia. matters but hope this helps.

look at the very ends of the spring coils, if they are MOOG springs there will be a 4 digit number stamped on the coil, usually very small and hard to see but they are there, maybe 2" from the end of the coil.
