52" spring mounting kit, AKA, B52's.

Putting 52's (Stock chevy rear springs) on the front of your 4 wheel drive 73-87(91) chevy pickup, blazer or suburban? If so you might be interested in a set of these. These are designed with 4 different mounting positions for the spring and two different mounting position for the bracket. This gives you a total of 8 possible places to mount your spring to tune that shackle angle to perfection.

We are also making this kit available with shackles for a package price. All shackles will come with 9/16" holes on the spring end and 7/16" holes on the frame end. We can do them with any size hole you want but if you don't specify this is what you'll recieve.



$170.00 for the base kit.

Thanks for the biz and happy to hear you like the product. They have been a good seller for those wanting a bit more flex out of their leaf spring rig.

Still one of the best ways to mont 52" springs on your Full size Chevy. Been shipping them steadily since we got back from Blazer Bash.

Yes, it works with lift 52's no problem.

The math doesn't cross over as linear as we'd like.

stock 52 is 4" of lift give or take.

4" lift 52, the math would say 8" but more like 9" maybe a bit more. The higher the advertise lift the further out of whack the numbers become.

On the shelf ready for welding for both the 73-80 and 81/87(91).

Always a hot seller so they won't sit around long.

You can use these with factory length lift springs. The bushings are to wide but with a little work or the right replacement set, they will bolt right up.

I need your front frame shackle mounts. I also have a k5 I'm building for another costumer I'll need lots of stuff for. B52, shackle parts, dash, etc.

Rear shackle flip. I had to weld them on because of some fab work prior to me not allowing me access to all of the rivet holes.

I don't think that shackle flip is coming off. Looks good to me!

What exactly is the difference between the 73-80 and the 81 up? I have an 85 Suburban but I am putting on a 73-80 front clip. Do i need the one that matches the clip or the frame?
