I'm just wondering if anyone has used the spring hanger kit from Allpro offroad.. http://www.allprooffroad.com/solid4.html
Seems to make things pretty damn easy.. and much faster then it would take me to fabricate the bits myself (seeing how I'd have to learn how to weld a few hundred times better:D.)
If anyone knows anything about these kits please share some insight!
Also if you know of a kit that is made locally that is similar let me know. I'd rather keep the money in my own backyard;)

it would be cheaper to get someone to build you a hanger... hangers are soooooo simple..

I run the allpro kit....I picked it up in the states so shipping was cheaper... anyways its a great kit and it set up quick and easy.....
There is a lot of shops that have kits up here now so I won't get it from allpro..... I know TNS Suspension has a sweet kit... they are in langley somewhere..... 4offrd has hangers too.... look around .... everyone does it a lil different

Sorry I forgot to add..... BBP reminded me! I put a couple braces on my hanger to beef it up a bit.... They actually don't sell the one I have now cause of the problem and the new one looks better....

its really easy to make one, as long as u have torches:D and a welder, i made mine out of 1/4" stock. mostly square tube so it made it easier. it cost me around 45$ and about 1 hour work so far, now i need to drill the holes, do some final grinding. and weld the thing together and it will never break unlike allpros old one.

Yeah ..or at least I'm going to try. :p
I guess the only thing I can do for steering and suspension for now is use the stock yota front springs,shackle thru frame..
still haven't figured out what shock mounts to use and I'm hoping that I'll be able to use the stock steering (from donor truck)
for the few weeks (month's) it will take to save a little more for high steer. for now I would be happy just to have a nice working swap to stock parts(and no IFS).. then I can go from there.

You have got to get x-over steering. There is no point in using the crappy push-pull stock solid axle steering. It is weak, drives like crap and doesn't flex very well. Use Ford shock mounts from an 88F-150. they are about 20 bucks each. The steering will be a pretty penny but you already have an IFS steering box so it will be an easy bolt on.

Your looking at a few grand to do the swap right. When you get your hanger made just remember from center of sping pack to center of spring pack is 29". Other than that you should have no problems in making it I made my own and have no welding experience. I bought the shackle tube kit from allpro(great buy) and took the hanger I made to a friend to weld on both items(tack weld only). Ithen went home and did the swap in about 2 full days. If you have any questions you can e-mail me for my phone number as other than the welding I did all the work myself.
