Rear Shackle Hangers

For the rear shackle hangers, we determined where we wanted the shackles to hang with the springs at full droop and used a 131/44-inch hole saw to buzz through the boxed frame. Then we cut a piece of 131/44-inch, 0.120-wall DOM tubing and slid in some 1.5-inch diameter Wrangler spring bushings. We assembled the shackles on the spring, then tacked the tube to the frame before pulling it apart and welding it up.
