I need some '99 frontleaf spring hangers. I don't know what I did with mine when I lowered my truck. Does it matter when I build my air suspension if I have lowered hangers or not? If so then I need them. !frustrated

It all depends if your are 2 linkin it or 4 link. The parallel 4 link will require you to cut off the fron perches. The 2 link, you can use your stock or lowered ones I think. I actually cut the rivets out and moved the perches closer to the cab. This let me use a longer link bar giving me a better ride. Plus, the stock perches are lower than the frame, so if you don't move them up, you will be laying perches before frame.

So to answer your question, you should be fine with lowered or stock perches for a 2 link, as long as you relocate them.

Cool. I was just wondering cause that's what I have. I am 4 linkin' it. Now when you say that you moved the perches up toward the cab, what did you do with the strap that holds the gas tank in? Did you cut it and move it up, or what?

I'll have to look, but if memory serves me right I just cut what I needed out of the way. Didn't have to relocate anything. I'll try to take some more detailed pics of the suspension this weekend.
