                                                     LOOK UNDER YOUR VAN!
         Not all AWD  Astros and Safaris come with the suspension parts usually specified by model year.

1990-1995 AWD models should have long torsion bars( extends beyond the transmission crossmember) with large (2.125") hex hole torsion keys and composite(Fiberglass) rear leaf springs.

1996-2005 AWD models should have short torsion bars (ends at transmission crossmember)with small (1.5") hex hole torsion keys and steel rear leaf springs.

Many times though it's a combination of types. Some are due to GM using up old stock during the 1995 body style transition year and others are the result of  repairs or upgrades.

In any case LOOK UNDER YOUR VAN BEFORE YOU ORDER to avoid receiving the wrong part and having your project delayed.
