FGB52 (FIRST GEN B52) Another one for you first gen guys! I must admit, the more I work on this truck the more I'm starting to become a first gen guy myself! This is pretty much a bolt on deal. It is offered in two forms, Front hangers only and Front and rear of the spring together. First off the front is much like our other B52 kit. The bracket itself bolts on in one place only. The rear most adjustment hole will get your 52's mounted, keep your tire centered in the wheel well and will require moving the frame eye hanger. Moving the spring all the way to the front will of course set your axle forward. It will also be possible at this location to use your existing frame eye hanger. In between holes, well you get the idea. More options are a good thing! If you decide to keep your axle in its current location as shown below, We have the frame eye hanger kit for you. This is specific to the first gen. Uses existing holes as much as possible for easy installation. Here's the catch! If your running an automatic transmission, You will need to fab up a support rod for the shift linkage or go to a cable shift set up. On to the photographs and please ask any questions you may have. It'll help me figure out what points I need to hit on when I post this on the website! FGB52 hangers and all the backer plates. FGB52 hanger mounted up spring in the rear most position to keep the axle in the stock location. Inside the frame rail, A shot of the backer plates. Not shown in the photo, we have included another bolt location further forward on the frame to add some additional support. Here's a shot of the frame eye hanger kit. It will include the frame eye hangers, fill plates for the hole left over, hardware and bushings, 9/16" bolts and the shackles themselves. The shackles are a bit different. For bolt head clearance we spaced the outboard shackle away from the frame .25". We don't want that shackle and those bolt heads arguing! This is a 6" shackle and the front end of the truck is bare frame with the engine and trans. No sheetmetal or cab so the angle is about perfect with some more weight on there. inside the rail on the pass side. Hole not filled yet with the included fill plates.
