The rear could have been done alot more simply than what we did on mine. my rear hangers are actually 5 different pieces of steel welded together to make a nice slider so I shouldn't get hung up on them too badly. It would be much easier to just pull front hangers off a truck that are the right width & weld them on. The shackles too are pretty biased towards off road use only, they are drilled through the frame like a fullsize truck uses on the front. The shackles themselves are quite long (10")Originally posted by Junkyard Slug:
<STRONG>Thanks Fullsize, I think I now know what I must do! Can you tell me what the 63" GM springs are from? (sorry, I'm not up to date on my Chevy suspention knowledge), and can you give me some pointers on fabing the spring/shackle hangers. I was thinking about just going to a steel house and buying some thick C channel with the right inside diameter. Any advice would be great!
It's a leaf kit that uses 3" wide F150 rears. You may be able to use it on your 250. I suggest calling Mike, he's a great guy and very willing help you with your application.Originally posted by BroncoRanger:
<STRONG>A leaf kit or coil kit? Can it be used on a 79 f-250?</STRONG>
Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't Mikes kit for early Broncos?Originally posted by Rubicrawler:
