    I need to move my front spring hangers forward about 3-4 inches to run the 52" springs up front and only have about 1.5" of frame left in front of where they currently hang.

    So... I am in need of a piece of 4 x 4 tubing to weld on to the frame. It will serve as the new mounting point as well as a mounting point for a bumper.

    Thanks

    oh yeah, did you still want those rear spring hangers (front ones) off that frame I have? Im gonna head out and do some hacking this weekend to get the L-brackets off the front for my 52" spring swap... could get them rear hangers for ya at the same time if you still needed them.

    D: oh heck, the frame is only 1/8" thick so something around 1/8, 3/16, 1/4... pretty much anything... Thanks!

    J: you bet, I will take the front mounts... you never can tell what they can be used for :thumb: Thanks!

    I would suggest you weld plates to the tubing that gives you some meathod of bolting the new crossmember into the frame rather than just welding it in if possible. It will be far less likely to crack from stress that way. It would also be best to bolt it into both the top and bottom flanges and not the vertical web.
