This Dodge one piece front spring hanger that you can run your Dodge springs in the OEM location or slide the axle forward 1 1/8" to help out your rear shackle angle.
It also allows you to run the pre 1987 chevy rear 52" spring with the axle about in the oem location or slide it forward 1 1/8" to help out your rear shackle angle or tire clearance.
I've run this setup in my RC on the street for a month & it rode like a car & flexed like crazy!!!
It looks like about 7" lift.

This is the hanger that will give 2" lift in the weldment.

In this kit you will receive;
1 ) Front spring 2" drop hanger weldment.
8 ) 1/2"-20 grade 8 bolts.
8 ) all metal 1/2-20 nuts
16 ) grade 8 SAE washers.
2 ) 5/8" grease bolt kits with the 1 1/2" poly bushings for the chevy springs.
4 ) straight shackles drilled for 5/8" bolts
4 ) "L" shackles drilled for 5/8" bolts

All the above for $370.64


Pics of my gold Rc has a stock 52" chevy spring in the front & 2" lift 56" chevy springs in the rear.

Front spring info.
The springs I am using you can see here;
http://www.sdtrucksprings.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=9652

They are for;
1973-1987 Chevy / GMC K10/1500, V10/1500 4wd - Leaf Spring (Rear - 5/1 Leaves) - See more at: http://www.sdtrucksprings.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=9652#sthash.XrEsHPHu.dpuf

They are 2 1/2" wide.
52" long
26" -26"  spring center bolt
1 1/2" spring eye bushings
1875Lb Spring capacity
5 7/8" arch
1 3/8" spring pack thickness.

Our front 3 leave packs have capacity of 1,750

If you do not have the HD frame bushing kit you will want & need it for this install.

    Yep, this is the kit we're going to need for front end; hanger and HD bushing kit.  We're going to need bigger springs than the 1/2 ton set on your RC.  Could we use the GM 3500 in that same year range from same supplier?  It looks like they're 57 but will keep truck in the 3/4 ton realm still

    Yes they would BUT you need to pic a spring that can handle the weight of your CTD. Look up what your springs can carry & when you pick out the 52" spring pic one that can carry the same weight & say 400Lbs or more. I figured that out when I put the 52" springs in my RC. I need to add an additional leaf or two to get it where I think it should be. Easier & cheaper to remove a leaf than have more made & installed.

    Do you make the 52 adjustable hangar with a drop also? I couldnt find it in the main page. I need a 3 inch drop and also can i just buy the hangar? I dont need the hardware or shackles.

    I currently have 52's on my truck now. I have a 2 inch drop hangar that i built along with custom dog leg shackles. I originally had shackle that were 5 inch eye to eye long. I recently changed them to 7 inch eye to eye for more flexibility. I didnt make a change to the front hangar yet, and id rather not fab anything up again, but I'd like to go an extra inch on my drop hangar. As far as what total lift do i have or have i gained i have no idea lol. I bought new Blazer rear springs rated at 2300lbs from sd spring.

    I have the 2" drop hanger kits & shackles that go with them.

    So do you think you'll need a 3" drop hanger kit? I can make one for ya.
