Where can I score a 4" hangar and shackle set?

Been looking for them for a while. Can't find them for the right price. Custom shop wants about $1,000 for a custom 4" hangar and shackle lift up front (already at 4" up front, but want to match 8" in the rear. Eventually, I will be going to 12" all the way around. May just do the 8" lift springs up front, and then hunt the hangars later).

Anyone know of any shops selling them, any distributors on here, anyone selling a used set? Anything?! Could def use some help.

maybe PMF or OUO. You can also talk to Cary from CTperformance, he can get you front hanger kits. He is a sponsor here.

not sure what your intended purpose is for your truck with 12" of lift. The higher the arch in springs, the stiffer the ride and less articulation you will have. You are better off using smaller springs and making up the difference with hangers/brackets as you are thinking now.

Over 8" will require lots of additional mods besides the springs-hangers...ride quality just drops...

I know that. I just want to level out for now. I've got a set of Fox Springs for the front and rear. Maybe going to dual shocks up front to help smoothen up a bit. I know I need my Track Bar Drop, Pitman Arm Drop, and Carrier Bearing Drop (I'm already at 8 in the rear - that's done). I'll probably need to replace my steering stabilizers (as I'm pretty sure they're worn out).

I know I may need to extend my driveshaft, I may need to extend brake lines, I may need to extend steering linkage... I have a buddy who runs a 4x4 shop helping me do the work, I just need to get the parts. His custom CNC guys wants about $750 - $900 for the shackles custom fabbed.

I just need to start off with the hangers. And take it from there. My other option is start with the 8" leaf springs in the front and replace those shocks. I'd prefer to just do the hanger and shackle up front for now so I can take care of the springs later on.
