    i was replacing mu upeer rear u joint and noticed that my front drivers side spring hanger (rear) was a little cockeyed. meaning the bottom was about 1/2 inch towards the wheel in lieu of being straight down. my blazer loved on a tree once before i got it. will this be dangerous to lift my truck now? will a blazer fit onto a truck frame?

    thanks

    Body mounts are different than a pick up truck. Grind the heads off the rivits and punch them out and bolt on a replacement hangar. Or, it's a good time to do the shackle flip.

    I think Nathan was talking about the FRONT of his truck...?

    Maybe you meant the HD Shackle Kit from ORD?

    i was talking about the front sorry about the wording. i just was scared that this might give my truck a dangerous lean with a lift on it.

    thanks

    The front axle, rear hangars are replaceable.
