    Making up rear spring perches also.
    How about the centering pin hole diamter for a set of rear springs?

    Anyone have an old stock perch or a non installed 14 bolt laying around to measure the hole for me?

    Thanks

    Mine are exactly 1/2 inch. I just made some spring pearches this past weekend out of 2 1/2 inch square steel 1/4 inch thick.

    Almost! I got the rear axle under it w/ the disc brakes on...now I found out I have a cracked leaf in the rear so I have to swap out the springs. Then weld the perches and shock mounts, install brake lines, swap the front...
    I hope to have it all done in 2 weeks (including new driveshaft)
