    does anyone know if the front spring hangers are designated as right or left? i torched off the drop bracket i had on there and torched the rivits out of two front spring hangers i saved from a scraped truck, well i had to fight my springs to get them back into the brackets then had to pry them into the pin holes in the front axle, should i be worried? or is everything fine once they are in the pin holes and torqued down?not driving it yet, need a few othere things taken care of first. does anyone know the size of nut i need for the rubber mount that holds the t-case adaptor to the crossmember? i seemed to have lost both of them and the tranny mount jumped out of the holes and now the studs are on top of the crossmember.....oh well ill get this thing going again soon, it looks tiny and pathetic now on 9"s, dont have any after pics yet, it was dark by the time i finished.

    lots of times you need to bend the tabs or twist the springs a bit to line up.
