I would think that they would fit. Your springs have probably begun to sag a little and lost a little of the arch to them. Don't you have over 160k on your springs now? It's just my opinon because I am not mechanic by any means. If I am wrong I am sure someone will steer you straight.

Then your springs have more then likely lost some arch causing them to "stretch".
When installing the new springs. I would just pay close attention to the shackles and what angle they are going to be running at. Just to make sure they wont pop over backwards.
