    sweetk30, I need the forward rear spring hangers so I can do a shackle flip... LMC has them for $80.00 a side... and I'd rather not spend $160 plus shipping on OEM parts... if I could afford that, I'd buy the ORD 4" flip kit

    f150 springs are 2.5" wide, f250 and f350 springs are 3" wide. you don't have to change the spring hangers to put fords 57" springs in a chevy as long as you get them from a f150.

    at the chevy dealer the factory brackets are like $25 each, the same ones LMC sells for $80 and with out shipping.
