Front Leaf spring hangers

I am doing a 4wd conversion on my 350 dually and I am in the process of setting up the leaf springs and I need to get the rear mounts for the front springs. Can I use the same mounts for the rear leaf springs? Or are there specific hangers I need to get. I am just using OBS replacement springs not superduty springs.

The mount is different than the rears. It straddles the cab mount. Dorman does make one. I have not seen it though so I cannot comment on its quality.

We have them available. Made in the USA, not like Dorman who has everything made in China.

Send me a message and I can give you some pricing on the kit which will give you all the bolts too.

If your going to all the work to make it 4x4, spend the money and install a Reverse Shackle Kit, instead of the worthless factory parts.

I just ordered a bunch of stuff from ATS a couple weeks ago. Great communication and great customer service. Parts were shipped fast as well!

My thought exactly. My project truck is a dually that's getting a Dana 60. My RSK should show up today. New super duty U codes, U bolts and factory rear lift blocks showed up last week thanks to ATS!

I have gotten springs and hardware from ATS, and I agree! All around great company. My springs are supposed to give about 2-3" above stock 350 4x4 ride height so I feel that with an RSK as well, the truck will ride too high to tow a gooseneck or 5th wheel. What do you all think?

That very well may be the case. As I'm not running a big lift with a gooseneck, I have no first hand experience there.
