Did you replace the mains and get wrong length? I've never had that much of problem rebolting in springs. Did you have them re'arched? I guess you could do as you said, but watch that truck and all d

The leaf spring hangers are riveted to the frame. If you remove (drill out ) the rivets, then when you put new (or better condition used) hangers on, you will want to use grade 8 hardware to replace

Dont really know about lubing leaf springs, but it would seem to me that if you put grease between the leafs, that would only create a magnet for dirt and debris to stick to, then it would work its w

I have a set of their front's and have no complaints after 15K on them. Some may not like the fact they don't have the original type clamps riveted to them but use rubber lined steel straps. Grant 50
