Default Rear spring hangers

I had my 715 up on my lift yesterday and as i was lifting it up off the ground i noticed some odd movement in the rear springs. As it turns out,the stud is fused to the shackle and starting to wear the hole bigger in the bracket thats rivited to the frame. Has anyone else had this happen? I assume that because they are greasable there are bushings that are gone. My parts manual says they are not sevicable. Has anyone modified this area any different? Thanks.

Surprised no one has said anything yet... but I had a similar issue.

Here is the thread with some good input.
Broken frame spring mount pins

Hope it helps

I guess i must have just missed that post. I wish i had taken those rear mounts off of the J-3000 parts truck i had. I'll probebly just take them apart and see were to go from there.
