spring question for rockwells

i heard you need to run a wider spring (heavy duty) when running rockwells. i was talking to a guy who said that i would have to build wider hangers for the springs and the stock hangers would not work (chevy). has anyone now if this is true or not.

Never heard of that but go to www.chuckstrucks.net. They have spring mounting plates to weld to the rockwell. Hope that helps.

Are you talking about the distance between the springs or the width of the leaf spring?

I do not see that as being a problem.

Has it been?

First thing link it. You'll be alot happyier. These toploads are full time axle rap makers. But the clamp on spring pan mount that came on these axle were set-up up with a real wide spring hell it was a 2.5 ton or 4 ton truck these came out of. They ran huge springe on them. Check into the stock ones.
