84 Runner. Dropped front hanger, 1" forward.


I welded the hanger in and hung the springs. With a 5.5"shackles the springs dont flatten out, yet the spring eye hits the frame. OK, so I make up some 7.5" shackles. Springs are flat and still hit the frame. All this is at ride height,weight on the front.

Sure, I could use the stock rears that are a little shorter, but I had my mind made up on the longer springs.


How do I make this work?

the late spring is about 4" longer than earlier springs,
with stock 79 rears, i have the front pin 1.5" forward of stock.
since the late springs is 2" longer up front, i'd say you need the hanger 2+" forward of stock for a usable shackle angle.
