Spring Perch Flip

So im flipping my rear spring perches soon and was wondering what size bolts i should use so i don't have to drill out the frame for larger bolts or is that inevitable?

Knocking the rivets out is the first step. Then once you have that done, just measure the holes. Use some Grade 8 hardware and I don't see why it wouldn't hold up to some off road abuse.

no problem with 8" bolts its what Ford wants you to use when there replaced. Hardest part is getting the rivits off. I actually Cutting Torched mine off and put all new hangers and shackles
