Bought C3500 basket case

I'm from the Heavy Haulers area('67 C50).

I recently bought a total basket case kinda running 1 ton C3500 truck. Has the 402ci, sm465, and can't figure out if it has an H052 or H072. I don't think I got a good deal but it is what it is(found lots of things once home). I bought this truck to work, not be restored pretty.

Cab is absolutely done, rusted to hell.

Was told truck came with flatbed, they took it off long ago. Many years later last owner found chevy longbed, cut my trucks frame, moved leaf springs, deleted Aux springs, and dropped the longbed on.

I'm kinda pissed that I somehow missed the suspension deletions, but that's my fault. Most of the parts are gone. I'd like to add them back but have no visuals on what the original setup looks like.

The GVWR on the plate says 9000 but I'm sure it ain't that anymore.

Any idea on if I can add aux springs back to a shortened frame? not sure how much was cut, probably 3-5"

Sorry the pics suck, I'll get better ones later.
