    Well the more and more I look at my 14 bolt I thought my shackles or spring hangers were bent, hmm I thought /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

    They do look bent but now I realize when I put the 14 bolt in I didn't bother to ever move the spring perches because they "appeared to be lined up" I was also told they were on a suburban from the guy I got it from and he said he moved them.

    So since they are just a tad off, do I leave it? The tires arn't wearing and it apears that I bent the hangers in by using it the way it is..

    I guess my only real concern is having spring failure at the perch or the springs or hanger? Sound likly? /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif

    All that Jabbering and no Pics? WTF? /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    Naw, I'll stop giving you hell on the pics Dude. But, Im concerned now that you might have a 14 bolt from a 1 Ton. The perches are off by several inches. Measure between the perches. Mine are 40" Inside to Inside of the Spring Perches. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
