    I was wondering if my suspention was stock or not. It could be a 2" or 2 1/2". The only reason I think this is because on my leaf pack I have (i think 3) dimonds. I was wondering if this is stock or could it be a aftermarket set? could this be black diamond springs???

    I thought the same thing. The OEM leaf spring manufacturer used that marking. Mitsibishi, I think.

    No need to panic, I did it for you already this past summer. I had an MAF Safari lift on my 40, that was replaced with 55 springs sprung over. When disassembling my 55 springs, I too saw the "mitsubishi" logo, and got all paniced, that I wasted my money on the wrong springs. On top of that the MAF spring packs are slightly narrower than OEM LC springs, so that added to my confusion! I was told, on LCML and POR, its just that the company that makes the springs for Toyota makes them for Mitsubishi as well. Chances are they are stock! At least the 2 sets of 55 springs, with Mitsubishi logos, I got are stock!
