Our Toyota rear Chevy spring hanger kit can save you hours of fabrication time.

The front hangers are designed to let you slide over obstacles, also laser cut and formed, 1/4 inch thick plate.
Kit comes with needed hardware. Front spring hanger may require drilling to 9/16ths depending on what domestic spring you choose, we include both bolt size's. We have been using this kit to hang 62 inch Chevy springs with excellent results.
Instructions for Spring Hanger Kit:
BASIC INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS ARE AS FOLLOWS.
MARK CENTER LINE OR PLUMB BOB AXLE , REMOVE AXLE, AND REMOVE LEAF SPRINGS. MEASURE OUT YOUR NEW LEAF SPRINGS AND MAKE YOU MARKS FOR WHERE YOUR NEW LEAF SPRING HANGER WILL GO. CUT OFF AND SAND EXISTING BRACKETS. TACK YOUR NEW LEAF SPRING HANGERS IN PLACE AND BOLT THE AXLE IN PLACE. MOCK UP THE SHACKLES AND SHACKLE HANGERS AND TACK ONTO THE FRAME. SET ONTO THE GROUND AT RIDE HEIGHT AND CHECK AXLE PLACEMENT, ALONG WITH SHACKLE ANGLE. IF EVERYTHING LOOKS GOOD REMOVE SPRINGS AND BUSHING FROM BRACKETS SO THEY DON'T MELT OR BURN. AFTER WELDING, PAINT AND REINSTALL SPRINGS, BUSHINGS, AND HARDWARE. TORQUE ALL HARDWARE APPROPRIATELY. THESE ARE BASIC INSTRUCTIONS, AXLE PLACEMENT MIGHT BE DIFFERENT FROM PERSON TO VEHICLE.
Upper and Lower Shock Mounts:
A rear shock hoop designed to allow shocks to be moved on top of the axle and tilted inward to allow maximum travel. These are designed to use eye mount shocks and are a weld-in item. Constructed of .120" wall 1.5" tubing. Fits all '79-'95 Toyota pickups and 4-Runners. Includes lower shock mounting tabs. note:trim to fit.
A U-bolt flip kit removes the stock square U-bolts and lower plates, replacing them with round U-bolts and new plates that mount on the top of your springs, adding at least 1.250 inches of clearance under your axles. We use 9/16ths grade 8 U-bolts front and rear. The spring plates are constructed of 1/4 inch steel, not thinner stamped and slotted 3/16ths as some competitors shops sell.
