    The rear spring hangers on my 2001 Ford Ranger truck were rusted away to almost nothing and VERY unsafe. I'm just glad that Dorman manufactures this part. I replaced the rear shackles at the same time with Dorman shackles. The job was quite reasonable in price thanks to Dorman and Advance Auto. When installing I did find it was easier whenever possible to drill into the old rivet heads to make them much easier to cut off with a cold chisel. A couple of them were difficult to get at and I had to use an angle grinder on some. Thanks to these hangers it is now once again safe to haul a half ton load on my half ton truck!

    Parts fit fine, but on a 02 Ranger the back of the truck leans to the passenger side about 1 inch. There should be an adjustment or specific left and right versions. It appears the left bracket is a good replacment bracket, the right bracket bolts on too high up on the frame. I might be able to drill new holes in the frame to correct the offset. I may just order the correct parts from Ford.

          heavy duty construction makes this part feel and look durable enough even for the harsh winters of OH. Install went relatively easy and the fact that all the hardware needed to install the bracket comes with the kit really helps.

              this a bit more difficult that the rear but, doable once you realize the original bushing can be removed with a drill and bit. also driver's side requires the dropping of gas tank and a moderate amount of grinding the rivets out (at least one 4" grinding wheel down to less than 3")

                    This worked and fit perfectly. The hardware was a nice touch and saved a trip to the hardware store. The old bracket is riveted to the frame and requires hammering/drilling/grinding to remove but I would suggest this anytime replacing the shackle as they weaken together

                        It was fairly easy to put on. The truck had a rusted one and had fell apart. After cleaning the frame it was really easy to put on. There was easy access and new bolts came with it so it went together easily.

                            Road salt had eaten the old ones away. We installed these without removing the bed, afraid that the bed bolts would be just as rusty. Angle grinder got rid of the old brackets and rivet heads. Punch the old rivets out of the frame. Be sure to install the shackle bolt from the outboard side, with the nut inside the hanger,in case you ever need to remove the shackle again. Due to locknuts included with the hanger, it is far easier for two guys to install these.

                                Both OEM hangers rusted in half so that the leaf springs were pushing against the bed. Removed the bed and ground off the rivets with a right angle grinder. These hangers bolted right up without any modification.

                                    With reference to this Dorman - OE Solutions Rear Shackle Hanger - part# 722-010, the transmission control solenoid may be the possible cause of the problem on your vehicle. However, I would suggest taking your vehicle to a certified mechanic for a proper diagnosis before buying and having parts installed that may not (solve/be) the problem. For any further assistance, you may also visit your nearest Advance Auto store or call us directly at 1-877-ADVANCE (238-2623) and one of our representatives there would be more than happy to assist you.

                                    This only fits for the rear. 722-011 is the part for the front for your vehicle.

                                    To further assist you on this question could you provide the vehicle's year, make, model, and engine size.

                                    For step by step instructions i recommend that you go to your nearest Advance Auto Parts store and purchase a repair manual.

                                    Jack the truck up with a floor-jack (or sizzor-jack) at the frame. If the spring has been wedged into the bed of the truck, go to the top and beat it loose with a hammer to come out. When the truck is jacked up to the mounting height there is no pressure on the spring. Use the jack to adjust the height/level to align the bolt holes.
