    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?

    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.
