    Overall length. The 2618-30 is slightly shorter and was used on D,R, and W models up to '40. The longer 30A spring was used on VLs from 31 up, all BT from '36 up, and all 45s from 41 up. The difference is about 5/32.

    Thanks,
    there is also a difference in the thickness, the 2618-30 is slightly thicker than the 30A.
    But why?
    I just bought one of each spring and wondered a little bit about the difference.
    But thats the game, now I‘m looking for a 2618-30 and 30A in NOS...😳😂

    Cheers

    I tried to tell a well known ebay seller that there was a difference. He refused to believe me. He told me they are all the same and got mad.
    I think I'll go build a snowman now.

    Ha ha, I think I remember this auction with the springs.
    That’s life, now I‘m a little bit smarter.

    I wish you all a nice weekend.

    P.S. we have no snow here, I will use mud.
