Looks like any fullsize Ford thith 3" leafs eg, Some Broncos/F-150s (most have 2.5" laefs), all F-250&350s have 3" springs.

I know that it's not off of the rear of any 1/2 ton truck they have all used the same shackle from 73-95. I'm thinking it's from a front of an f250-350, or off of an early ranger b2.

As far as I know 2wd f150's got 2.5" springs but all 4x4 trucks and Broncos from 80-96 had 3" springs

yj's are 2.5" springs too, but with the bushings they measure out to 3". I know that ford didn't switch to 3" springs until 96', that was a big marketing deal.
