63" Chevy Frenched Spring Hangers!
These are an evolution of our chassis link brackets but we have taken the ramp to an extreme by boxing it and recessing it into the frame. I know it has been done before but what I have found has always been too small for my taste, I wanted to spread the stress of the frame surgery over a greater area and these are what happened. Both of these make for an absolutely smooth transition from the rock to the rig, no walls in the way!

A great way to gain all the benefits of 63" Chevy springs with less drag to go with the additional flex they can provide. That has always been the main drawback to using them, mounting the spring hanger forwards on the frame and making it a bigger target than what you started with. Think about adding a pair of Bushed DOM sleeves to french in the shackle hangers to lower the rear also, that can help lower any rig while gaining flex. These require welding to finish and mount, the frame requires cutting to recess the bracket into the frame. These have a 3" ID to fit the larger bushings that come on the Chevy's. The folds on the ends are your pattern for where to cut your frame. These allow for an extremely low profile spring by spreading the ramp over 5", the bracket is 8" long.

These are not vehicle specific and should work on both. I will see if I can find some pictures for you.

Yes, 63" chevies are ideal on Tacos, nearly as good as a linked suspension...
