Hangers And Shackles

I decided to use a set of 63-inch Chevy springs on the back of the Dumpster, but I had to replace the hangers and shackles. Luckily I had an Offroad Design shackle flip kit, and I used the shackle flip mount up front as the spring hanger. To determine the location of the spring I centered the center pin within the wheelwell. As the spring compresses the axle moves rearward slightly because the spring flattens out and the shackle pivots.
