Re: 84' 3/4 lowered advice

No. The 'hanger' is your new front leaf spring mount. The 'shacle' replaces the rear facory shackle.

Re: 84' 3/4 lowered advice

I believe that is correct. I can't remember the exact cut off year.

Life isn't tied with a bow, but it's still a gift.
Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly. Leave the rest to God!
It's scary when you start making the same noises as your coffee maker.

No suggestions here. I don't care for any of the 'new' commercially available 8-lug wheels unless you hit close to the 1k each price tag (some of them look pretty clean). Everything 8-lug that's current & affordable has jacked-up offsets/back-spacing geared toward newer trucks that are lifted.
