Spring Hanger Dimensions??
« on: May 22, 2003, 03:52:29 AM »
I want to fab my own spring hanger similar to All Pro's. $140 seems a bit much for something that simple.  :crazy:  :stopit:  However, I'm not sure on the dimensions and material to use?? :dunno: I want to use 1.5" longer springs in front and a 1" drop. Can anyone post a drawing or some better pics for reference?? :chug: :.order:
Thanks.

I did a 2" drop and moved the front forward 1". I used 2x 6 square tube so I can put a reciever hitch in it. I'll try to get some pics up soon.

When you say "moved the front forward 1"", where is the point of reference?? In other words, where would the stock hangers be placed on the frame of a soon to be SAS rig?  :~~:

Sorry I took so long, almost forgot about this one. On my truck ('83) the front eye is roughly centered in the body mount. I moved that hole forward 1". hope this is somewhat helpful.
