The hanger spacing is going to depend on a few things including the spring measurements and the equalizers being used. But if you were using spring # SP-160275 the distance between the hangers would be around 29-3/4 inches. However this is using hanger kit # AP202-H202 with 10-1/8 inch equalizers.

If you were using kit # AP216-H202 the hanger spacing guideline would be 31-1/2 inches because the equalizers are longer. So you can see that it changes depending on the components being used.

Also, these measurements are a guideline only. The true spacing can only be determined by mocking up all the suspension components first before permanently installing everything.
