    On my van I noticed that unlike most vehicles I have seen.. The rear leaf shackle sits ON some type of bracket that connects directly to the frame. I was wondering if anyone knows what this bracket is called? Its rusted through so I have to replace it.. But I have absolutely no idea what to ask for when I call the boneyard.

    Thanks again

    It is called a spring hanger. They are a pain to get off...they most likely will just torch you off the section of frame it is on and let you deal with it.

    Thanks for the reply... I was looking at the thing and it sure does look like a pain to get off. The gas tank and trailer hitch are both in the way. Then I get to deal with all those rusty bolts.
