Are you keeping suspy stock? if not, nows a good time to decide.Either way, you'll be cutting off the old hangers and running grade 8 bolts through your new hangers. This is a common replacement on these trucks and I find it to be a fun project. Not much room for tricks on this project..just be sure the shackles and hangers arn't under pressure of holding the truck or axle and its a good ol' fashion cut or torch, and bolt-on the new. Great How-to link!
