From every thing I have heard there are no other springs that will work with out some modification, but if modification isnt a prob for you I would say take some measurements and hit the junkyard.. Good luck to you

modification won`t be a problem Tony.
with what type of leafspring can i start?
I take some measurements , a friend has some surburban parts.
I look if they could be modified to work with.

But If anyone know where to start, Let me know..

So according to that site the s10/s15 up to 95 have the same dimensions as the 95+ astro van springs and from what I know the springs from a 1995+ astro will bolt onto a 1995and older as long as you have access to the mounting brackets I only bring this up because the purchase price of the brackets and s10 springs are cheaper then the conversion kit for the fiberglass springs right?

Yeb. the Astro steel-leafsprings will fit on early models if you use the also front mounting.
But you can`t find 97+ astro`s over here at the JY. some early types if your lucky.
Pick-up parts enough at the USA Cars JY in the Netherlands.
