    Anyone else dealt with worn out front spring hangars. That'd be the rear mount on the frame for the front springs. Mine are oblonged and the shackle pops over any significant bump, even with good bushings. I know LMC carries replacements for 80.00 a pop but that is a bit steep for my wallet. Anyone else fab these or did you just get a set used?

    Hint, as in you make it? :dunno: I don't remember seeing it on your site.

    Here's a link to the LMC catalog page for reference. Part #19.

    Brent from Trople Motorsports makes new ones that hold 1-1/2 bushings instead of the anemic stock 1-1/8 bushings. This allows the use of a bigger bolt (9/16 instead of 7/16) without losing any bushing material. Adds a lot of strength if you ask me, and you probably wouldn't have to be worrying about this ever again.

    I appreciate the heads up but the link takes me to an HTTP page.
