Default Diagram for redrilling hangers





for information's sake, here's the shit i used

- a strong drill, not a battery-powered one. a real drill. one you plug in

- 3/4" drill bit (get a good one, that hanger is a tough piece of metal)

- sawzall or similar to cut the excess off when youre done

- 4" x 3/4" grade 8 bolt (2), grade 8 nut (2), grade 8 washer (2), and grade 8 lock washer (2)

hope this helps some. its really easy to do. just be careful drilling and sawing next to the gas tank

its 3/4. fixed it for you.

and dont forget some cutting oil on the drill bit. cutting oil, gear oil, motor oil, wd40, something to make it easier on you.

I thought that you had to drill it with a smaller bit first and then go to a .75" whole. I havent done the mod yet but i want to get my truck that 1" or so lower in the back. Has anyone actually printed this out and made sure its right???? because if everything is good im going to do this on the weekend hopefully

ive seen the same size image posted 100 times and everyone always has different results on what scale it actually prints out.

i measured the bolt hole in photoshop and it comes out to .653" which is not the 3/4" it is supposed to be.

so to anyone using this template, do your homework. it may or may not be right.

if someone wants to make a new template, please include some reference marks on it so people can print it to scale. for example, measure out and mark a distance of 1" on your template before you scan it. that way the people that print it out can measure the scale and tell if it is correct.

realisitcally, you could probably do that. the rear shackle will move so there is some flexibility in where you drill your hole. the main thing is to drill all your holes in the same place so your suspension is not in a bind and tracks straight.
