You must either get a new bushing for the chevy spring to match the original ranger bolt or modify the ranger hanger, I modified the hanger,
I welded 2 grade 8 9/16" washers on the outside of the hanger.
I also welded one washer on the backside w a 9/16 nut welded to that.
Put hanger on loosely w the one lower front hole in the frame, and mark hanger where the hole needs to be oblonged.
Oblong hole on the top rear of the hanger so you can use the extisting frame holes
Bolt hanger on using the 2 front holes front the old hanger.
Drill the 2 front hanger holes using the hanger as a template(BE CAREFUL OF FUEL LINES, ELECTRICAL HARNESS AND BRAKE LINES)
Mount hanger with 1/2" hardware.
Clean all the spring bolts and bushings w a wire brush/wire wheel. And liberaly coat w antiseeze.
Install chevy springs w bolts and start nuts(but do NOT tighten)
take one end of the rear shocks off.
drop axle far enough down to get the blocks back in place, then put NEW u-bolts in.
Set truck on the axle with the truck weigh on it. Tighten u-bolts, reattach shocks(good time to replace)
Weld some sort of metal to the drivers spring hanger then attach e-brake bracket near its original location.
Put bed back on.
Tighten the spring bolts noe with the full truck weight on them
