What Does Hole In Rear Hanger For 2-1/2" Wide Hanger Used For?


this hanger, why does it have a hole? and how do I measure my rear slipper spring hanger with NO HOLE, it does have the 5/16inch bolt. Thanks, I have more questions so dont try leaving early.


Helpful Expert Reply:

The Rear Hanger for 2-1/2" Wide Slipper Springs - 6" Tall # 093026 you were looking at has a hole just to allow you to measure the height of the hanger, and the hole lines up with the bottom of the support that the hanger rests against.

To measure your hanger you will need to measure from the top of the hanger to the center of the 5/16" bolt hole you mentioned to get the length.

You will also need to measure the inside width of the hanger as slipper springs can be 1-3/4" - 3" wide. The # 093026 you were looking at is for 2-1/2" wide slipper springs and measures 6" tall.

Based on the picture of your slipper spring you will more than likely need the # 30-28 instead as it has the same 5/16" hole, but is 5-1/4" tall and 2" wide.

If you can confirm the size of your hanger I would be happy to confirm the correct replacement.

I included videos of the products mentioned for you to take a look at.
