Trunk spring length needed

Can someone please pop their trunk and measure the length of the trunk torsion springs?

I am not totally positive that I received them with my project, need to identify a pair of them here.

Thanks in advance!

Scott;
My spare set measured 45" total length. I got them from ALL CLASSIC MOTORS in Velva, ND. About $30ea.
I have read discussions about whether standard '67/68 torsion rods are different from HCS/CS rods. I don't believe they are. If anything, the fiberglass decklids are lighter weight than the metal decklids. And if so, not by any appreciable amount.
