      was reading on the offroad ranger site about a 63" chevy 1/2 ton spring swap. Knew a lot of yota guys did this swap.

      Was wondering if anyone here has converted to teh 63" chevy springs and what the results were?

      you will need to remount the shackle hangars and the front spring hangars as they are not the same size as the explorer leafs

      that is a given.... the rear shackle will stay where it is and the forward hanger will be mover forward 6". I am thinking that two of the factory holes can be reused to remounteh spring hanger.
