    On a k30 3+3 rear shackle hanger, are they the same as the 1/2 and 3/4 tons? I recall something about them being located under the frame rails...? /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif pics?

    They are different, but not under the frame rails. They are narrower when you stand from the rear to view them looking forward.

    From the frame to the shackle is shorter, correct? Is the outer diameter of the hanger 3 3/4" accross the shackle bolt holes, same as the 1/2 tons? I'm looking to fit a bracket to one, but dont have one to reference.
