Re: Front Spring Hangers

You have to run 52" springs with those, right?

Re: Front Spring Hangers

ahh, ya i think so. I think the stockers would be too short for the rear most holes on those brackets. Not to mention, there should be a cheaper solution for you as well. Sry... I know there was a company carrying stock replacement brackets for square bodies and earlier but it's been so long I don't remember who it was.

Re: Front Spring Hangers

I'm needing a set also, may have to do the 52" set-up...is that what the squarebodys had was 52" springs? Just wondering how much more cash I'll have to shell out if I go that route. I bought a truck that has been put in a ditch on passenger side and twisted and tore the front passenger spring hanger.

Re: Front Spring Hangers

I don't think you "have" to run 52s with that kit, I wanna say using stock 47s will move the axle forward 1". I had a set of these on a 2wd crew that I converted to 4wd, and used stock style 4" 47s. You don't have to do much just to run 52s. Mainly moving the front mount forward.

IIRC, the front eye mount is right below the radiator core mount. The set I have ('67 - '72) has a mess of holes all over it. I wouldn't be a bit surprised if there were eye mounts for the stock location that would let you run the 47s. I can take a look tomorrow and post back. The B52s are a bulletproof set that belong on a battleship more than a truck.

FWIW, 52s aren't a big deal to install either.

Re: Front Spring Hangers

Do not believe the B52 brackets interfere with the bumper. Side braces will bolt up just like stock in the radiator support section. May be able to use the longer 73+ front springs with the brackets for a stock like height. Think it was mentioned the furthest back bolt location is about 1" froward from stock.
52" never came on the front of Chevy 4x4's. Off the shelf you will have to use rear springs. They will have more arch and will add 4"-5" of lift with the kit. If you want lower custom springs are the only option with the brackets

They actually won't let the bumper go on. You'd have to cut/notch the bumper to get it to bolt on correctly. I put a pair on a 72 I was K swapping and I ended up pulling them off and installing oem ones because of this.

Gotcha.

Looks like I might go with Sky's Drop Perch instead.

Re: Front Spring Hangers

If you weren't putting the spring in the front hole, you could cut the DIY perch and leave the bumper alone. I needed the front hole to make it all work so I just started over with Alcan springs.

Interesting information. I purchased a set of the b-52's but ended up going a completly different direction with the front suspension. I have never heard of interference issues. Any possibility the C to K swap may have something to do with it?

I wondered the same thing. I'm going to make a template from a K frame horn and place it over the C frame horn so I can add the tow hook holes. We'll see then how much horn difference there is. This frame is a Longhorn which is a 1 ton based frame, and I'm betting it's different than a C/10/20.
