If you are fabing all the mounts I don't see why not. You know what the measurements are so you can figure it out.

Chevy leafs are the one of the flatter springs available, depending on the configuration they flex and ride very well and are even used on the s series trucks, I think the center of the s series spring is offset different than the 1/2 ton but you can add and remove leafs as nessicerry to get the height you want plus the size of your shakles will help determine how much lift you get... so like I said, it depends on how you set them up.

I bet with the extra leafs it rides like a bitch. I'm running 52" Chevy leafs with 4 leafs (including main leaf) on a saw noma, front and rear.
