Spring Hanger Close Up

Here's a closer look at our spring hangers. We had modified a couple M.O.R.E. shackle reversal spring hangers for use in the rear of our '48 Willy pickup by cutting and shortening them. M.O.R.E. now offers its hangers in a "stubby" version which would have saved us some effort. Between the new spring mount location and the different centerpin-to-spring eye measurements the front axle was moved forward 2 inches. We could have moved it farther forward but modifications to the stock steering linkage and steering box mount would have been necessary.
