The Lone Ranger – 60/14 Bolt swap – Rear Leaf Mounts Finial Location (Under Cab)

After constructing the rear leaf mounts (Linky) it was time to get them located correctly and add some gusseting.

From the above mentioned thread, I’ve already welded up the hangers by using some ¼” plate to tie things together and set my standoff distance (1.5” from the frame, same as the stock hangers):

For the gussets, I added two on top, and one in the front:

And one more tying in the rear

To locate these mounts, I butted them against the rear cab mounts. Going off of that as a reference point, the center of the hole is located 1.25” from the cab mount (“A”) and 2.125” from the bottom of the frame (“C”):

This puts my axle center line at 115” wheel base using the stock chevy 63” leaf springs.
