    With all of the 52, 56, etc front spring swaps why doesn't anyone make something like these? I know they would cost $ instead of using the free hangers your removing but with the front eye adjustability it would seem to cure all of the good/bad shackle angle scenerios. I know the frame horns changed over the years but aren't they similar enough to do this?

    Rad sent me a few links about things he may/may not do to his Dodge and I saw this on one of the pages. The bracket is simple and the idea of multiple holes seems so obvious (now that I've seen it :doah: ) I'm surprised no one is making them.

    Is it held on with anything more than the 2 bolts through the frame?

    Thats a cool idea but unless the spring was mounted in the very front hole,I would bend those up crashing into rocks :D

    Thats some what along the same lines i was designing up. I wanted to keep the stock bumper mount holes, and was figuring out a way to do this. That set up that you pictured seems to be a great idea. Sweet find.

    Just thought I'd bump this for people to see and check interest since Kert is considering making them. :thumb:

    I would def buy a set of those as I intend to go to 56s up front and I already have a bumper that I would prefer to not rework the mounting of it. They look pretty beefy also.

    I'd def. be up for a set when I do a spring swap. My current plan for a winch mount will render the "traditional" method useless.

    I would be up for a set for the 56 swap I plan on doing in about 6 months

    ami right in thinking that with those you would not have to move the rear hanger with 52's
