sup dude? you can put them back on with bolts, nuts, and some washers. i had to do the same thing when i went from a 4" drop (hangers and shackles) to my current 7" drop ( flip kit and shackle). if possible use grade 8 quality bolts and nuts. they can handle little more torque when you tighten them and they dont rust.

Werd! Hey 03sierra you got any pics of your truck? What drop do you have?

That's what I did when I changed from 2" hangers to 3" springs.

yeah I'd get Grade 8 bolts, washers, lock washers, and nuts. Then use a little thread lock, just to make sure ya won't have any worries.
