Please allow a 4 business day turn around time for our shop to build your kit
We need a couple of questions answered before we can make
these for you.
PLEASE USE PICTURE TO FIND NEEDED DIMENSIONS
A= What is the distance between the frame and the inner
side of the bushing in the leaf spring?"
Measurement A may be no greater than 3 1/2" and no less than .75"
B= How wide are your leaf springs at the bushing?
Measurement B can be no smaller than 2.5" (for 2" wide spring) and no larger than 4"
C = 4.5 inches and we do not have an option to change.
We have done away with the "female style" shackle receiver
end and went with a much stronger design. This design
allows the use of a non brand specific loose shackle. We suggest welding them on, but if you decide to bolt them on, you will
have to drill 4 holes in the frame because these do not
fit any stock bolt pattern.
The bushing sleeve is 2" x .25 wall DOM and is attached on four sides to the 1/4" plate torsion box mounting bracket. This enclosed design eliminates the need for any additional gusseting other kits require. The Bushings themselves are 1 1/2" in the minor diameter so you can flex them hard without tearing up the bushings
and the bushing shoulder is 1/4" thick for the same reason.
If you intend to bolt them on, we would recommend removing the gas tank to install them.
They mount through 4 holes you need to drill and after
removing the gas tank (if necessary) should take no more
than 45 minutes to install. To help you determine your ride height and shackle length, the center of the shackle eyelet sits about 1 1/8" below the mounting plate.
You should always use a shackle length that is ideal for your chosen springs.
Everything in the picture is included, on the shackles
we offer either a 4",5",6", or 7" long.
Since these hangers are made to order all sales are final and cannot be returned or changed once submitted
Questions and Answers
Matt K. on -- Asked:
I am looking at putting this kit onto a 2001 Dodge ram 2500 diesel with 3 inch wide rear leaf springs. In the past I have seen kids like this require the need for a "Zero-Leaf" to be added under the spring pack. Does your kit require the use of a "Zero-Leaf"??
The 2nd part of my question is if I should be looking for a different leaf pack to replace the 3" wide leaves to shoot for a much smoother suspension on & off road, in addition to creating much more suspension travel than the 3" leaves ever would? (I still have my airbags I can easily bolt up for heavy loadsshould the need arise)
Thank you very much for your assistance, itís GREATLY appreciated!!!
That will depend on the vehicle.
Doing a shackle flip can move the axle forward about a 1/4" since it is pushing the rear of the spring further from the frame. But if you have aftermarket lift springs or aftermarket lift blocks it can result in the axle moving almost 1" forward. To counteract this, you can drill another hole in your leaf spring perch to move the axle back, or some companies include a "zero-rate" spring, which allows the center pin to sit into it and then has another pin that would go into the factory axle perch hole to push the axle back.
Since our kit is not a vehicle specific kit, we do not include any zero-rate springs.
As for the spring width itself, I would probably stick with the 3" wide springs for strength and maybe just remove a leaf from the pack.
I've turned 3/4 ton chevy 2.5" wide springs into a pretzel on the trail just under a 4 cylinder Toyota, granted I did not have an anti-wrap, but I can imagine under a full size dodge would be fairly easy to do with the diesel.
Christian on -- Asked:
Hi, Im looking to do a shackle flip for my 1991 dodge ram w250. i would like to lift the rear 4" . do you guys happen to know what the dimensions would already be for that on a stock dodge ram including what size shackle i would need? i know that is asking a lot with little information.
Unfortunately we do not have that information. I can tell you that the center hole for the shackle mount on this kit is about 1 1/8" below the mounting plate to help you make your calculations.
Tj on -- Asked:
Are bushings included?
Yes the bushings are include.
Liamhermkens on -- Asked:
How much lift does the mount give me ? So I know how tall my shackle measurement should be
This kit with a 4" shackle would get about 4" of lift
