I haven't tried it so I don't know for sure. My Ranger has 2.5" springs, so I think chances are good.

An easy way to figure its a 31 spline is measure the circumference with a string, if a caliper isn't available.
Mine was very roughly 10.5" (maybe a bit less). I divided that with pi (~3.14) and got about 3.34 as my diam.
Very rough but you will know for sure at least.

If you can see in the picture of the blocks and U bolts you will see what I was talking about the PINK and BLUE stamped

Good news also the park brake wasnt cut it just wasnt pulled all the way out. So I dont haveto swap those over
