    Interested In purchasing these and having shipped to 81201.

    tried pm'ing you, not sure it worked.
    Also curious if anyone sees any glaring problems with using a set of Alcan springs that were built for the rear of the truck to eliminate the blocks, in the front.  They are 52 inch springs like the chevy springs, except they are 28/24 inches to the axle pin.
    Plan is to move front mount four inches forward.
    I put 63 inch springs in the rear, these are extra and would like to use them.

    These are available in an install kit setup. You will get;
     2) HD Heavy Duty DOM tube frame bushing holder weldments.
     2) 1 1/2" poly "T" style bushing assemblies with DOM sleeve for the 5/8" bolt.
     2) greasable 5/8" grade 8 bolts with all metal lock nuts. 
     4) 3/8" thick HD shackles
     2) 1.030" poly "T" style bushing assemblies with DOM sleeve for the 5/8" bolt for Dodge springs
     2) greasable  5/8" grade 8 bolts with all metal lock nuts. 
     4) 1/2" grade 8 bolts to mount to the frame
     2) 1/2" grade 8 button head bolts to mount to the frame
     6) 1/2" all metal lock nuts
    10) 1/2" grade 8 flat washers
    1) drill template for opening up the hole in the frame using a 2" hole saw.
    2) Shackle spacer washers ( to clear bolt heads when flexing)

    Here's a few pics of the parts that are in the kit. The kit is to install on the rear of the front springs replacing the weak stock setup. I included everything in the kit to make it easier to install & end the chase for parts. I do not mark up the price bushings or bolts. I'm doing this to make a sweet install for you. Myself, I hate surprises & the question of where can I find these parts. I have installed 2 of these kits in my RCs without a hitch. Check my threads for pics of the install.The kit price to all RCCers is $307.46 + shipping
    all kits now include the upgraded 5/8" grease bolts in the front spring eyes & the shackles.

    These weldments & the 4 shackles are now Sand blasted to white steel & then powder Coated with Gloss Black.

    I also ship them as they are to be installed.
    The grease fitting in the 2" DOM tube faces the rear of the truck.
    Torque your grease bolt to 85 Ft Lbs
    Thanks for looking,
    Jim

    Hey Jim,
    Received my kits and installed them today now that the paint on the frame is dry.
    Couple of q's:
    1: What torque for the frame bolts and shackle bolts?
    2: What grease do you recommend?
    Kits are awesome btw!

    Pics are AWESOME!!!
    Torque your 1/2-20's to 90-100 Ft Ft Lbs

    I use Loctite Viper Lube in a Hand grease gun. The Power greasers seem to really pressurize everything fast & can push the grease fitting out.

    Hello Jim.  I am interested in kit for 92 W250 CTD to use with 2.5" skyjacker front springs (spring eyes approx 1"). (Your parts list mentions 1-1/2" T bushings? = confused).  So to install I would cut the 2" hole at rear mount and enlarge the front hanger holes to accept the 5/8" greasable bolt, correct?  Please PM quote.  Shipping would be to 99708 PO Box much preferred.  If can't use USPS, then usually too expensive to ship physical address 99712. 
    Thanks
