My sas parts bin just recieved a major addition today, courtsey of Davids78bronco.

I was a little leary of the origional leaf hangers I bought from a wrecking yard...They just looked a little flimsy for the wheel/tire combo I'm shooting for.

This thing is a beast...Just the way I wanted it.









Thanks for puttin' up with me(and my 50,000 PMs) Dave:beer

No real reason for going up the open side other than I found a setup that I liked (TTblows), and bought the same hangers that he used. I know roughly what the lift(inch wise) is gonna be, so I just wanted to stay with what I knew.

After staring at them for a while, I just decided I needed something a little sturdier(sp) than those late '70s hangers, so this is the route I chose...Basically I didnt want to have to rethink anything...Thinking hurts enough as is.

You've probably already seen it, but here's Keith's setup.





As far as the angle iron. It looks like he just welded two peices of 3/8" together, and then welded them to the outside mount.

Here's a blurry pic



The hangers themselves are pretty close to an exact duplicate of the one's I sent him...Only now, I have a xmember(obviously), and they're overall WAY stronger.

Dont know if that clears anything up.
