Wanna talk about frame rot?

Me either but unfortunately it's a problem up here.

My spring hangers are trashed. They will be replaced when the weather is warmer (feel free to send me quotes. rear: front and back).

However, it's quite concerning to see that the frame appears to be rotting through in the same area as the rear front hanger on the driver's side (read the previous again and visualize...... got it? good!). The rest of the frame is fine. I fear that when i remove the hanger i won't have much frame left when i'm done

What options are out there to fix this or is it terminal and i should just enjoy what little life she has left?

Thanks,
Eric

drop the front tank move the fuel lines out of the way. remove spring and hanger, weld a plate across the hole reinstall with a new hanger (you will need longer bolts if you cover the holes with the plate)

Thanks.

No holes in the frame yet. Just layers of steel pealing away.

Cut the area out and weld a plate in?

i wouldn't cut it out just clean it up and weld a larger plate to the inside/outside of the frame maybe both inside and out, depends on what you want to do there

Personally I would cut it out and POSSIBLY plate

here is a frame that I cut out for the shock brackets and welded in new, I actually use the Exact section of good frame, I didn't drill one hole.






Does your frame look like this behind the hanger?

Thanks Terry, my initial thought was to clean it up and put plates on each side.

I have to be honest, when I posted this I was hoping you would weigh in Brad because I've seen how far you've been in to these trucks, and you didn't disappoint. Thanks for the pictures, they help a ton. I don't think The frame is anywhere close to the last picture you posted but I won't really know until I can get in there and clean stuff up. I'll try to get some pictures up. Now I Just need to find someone that can weld

Hmmm.... Rad support suggestions? Or am I pressing my luck?

Take a pick hammer and BEAT on and around the rusted area. You will not hurt anything, it will just expose what metal you have left. That frame rail in that last pick was not that bad UNTILL i used the air hammer to drive out the rivets exposing the bad metal

Rad supports are hard to come by and they bring a premium.

I just bought 2 from Florida on Friday

I came across these last week. Whether or not they are LEGIT diesel supports and not the gasser ones, I'm not sure. You would have to call and verify but thought I'd at least pass it along.
