I dont have much time here. I just joined the forum.
Both my rear spring hangers and shackles were broken, so I took off the bed and cut off all the rusty parts on rear of springs, saw that front hanger on drivers side spring is rusted through and I was thinking, "Man, I should upgrade/change out this whole system instead of just replacing the hangers.", but I dont really know what to replace it with.
My budget is junk yard, parting out size. I figured for the cost of the hangers and shackles I could buy a whole rear end.
(I gotta get this thing back together before too long or my land lord will kick my butt!)
