    O.K. did a search and did'nt find any info...got a set of factory hooks for my '76 K-5.. looked under it today and the hooks do not line up with any existing holes on the frame... 3 3/4 inch between each hole on the hooks (center of each hole).. 3 1/4 between any hole in the frame... do I bolt to one and drill the other... Thanks... also are these hooks strong enough compared to aftermarket?? /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    I don't remember exactly, but I believe the 80's style hooks won't fit on the 70's style trucks,
    they changed the front frame horns slightly, so make sure you have the '70's style hooks.

    The hooks, if I remember,
    are supposed to mount angle down, so the holes you want are the slot and the top most
    rearward hole...if I remember....

    This is a '73 frame...should be the same as your '75
