Default broken leaf bracket help

Drivers side leaf spring bracket opposite of the bumper side. I have purchased the new bracket and bolts. All i need now is to know how to fix it before the leaf spring breaks through the bed or the rear axle comes from under the truck. Does anybody know how to do this???

It's also wise that if that front hanger is gone already, the others aren't far behind. Usually it's those rear ones and shackles that go out before the front ones. Might as well dump $200 in new hangers and shackles on both sides of the leaf.

It's horrible! They have the plows down and the salt pouring on the roads for under an inch of snow. You're lucky you got away from it all.
