Thank you for the info so I will measure the distance from center of eye to eye following the arch then measure from the solid mount hole to the shackle as its flipped as far back as it can go as long as this measurement is longer then the spring measurement it will be fine?

ok its been long overdue for an update in this thread i was going with those SD front hangers and mounting them up front but i made a different front crossmember instead gives alittle more lift then the stock one and in the rear i went with four SD solid leaf mounts and used the shackles so everything bolted up easy truck is at a nice height now alot from stock just need to find some tires

What kind of rear springs are those? Pro-comp 2000ish superduty lift springs? How much lift are the spring you are using giving over stock?

The springs are 8" skyjacker 99-04 front and rear leafs my custom front spring mount/ crossmember adds around 1 1/2" extra lift over the stock crossmember and the way I set up the rear hangers using both front solid leaf mounts for the front and rear gives it alittle more height I'd say the springs alone added about 8-10" by themselves I have my stock height wrote down somewhere so I could see how much lift I got in the end but I can't find it I can always measure what I got now and compare it to someone else's stock truck measurement
