I finally got my rear suspension off....but...

I broke a stud on one of my leaf spring brackets....the ones that hold the springs at the forward end.

Do these studs come out/off? Any experience? Anyone sell replacement spring brackets? Here are pictures of what I'm referring to....any advice or experience would be helpful.

Yes the front spring hangers that bolt into the frame have press in studs, I have
had to replace two myself just pressed some out of some not so hard to find
A-Body hangers and pressed them into my B-Body hangers.

You can buy the rear shackles brand new from mopar as well.

Thanks. I'll put the torch to the studs to loosen them up and try knocking them out.

John at www.uscartool.com sells replacement/modified brackets that you might be able to use.....

You can probably find just the studs at a good hardware store
