    I'm planning on using a 41 banjo rearend for my model A build. But weld leaf springs hangers on top like a factory model a. Will the existing rear mounted leaf spring hangers serve any purpose or should I go ahead and cut them off?

    Also, does anyone else have experience building this setup? ImageUploadedByH.A.M.B.1418764076.131677.jpg ImageUploadedByH.A.M.B.1418764095.026348.jpg

    They will serve no purpose if you are mounting the spring on top of the axle….cut them off.

    Okay, that is what I thought. But better to check before it is too late.

  4. Why not find some model A bells, cut off the hanger/flange leaving the top two mounting holes intact, then bolt them to the backside of your existing flange?. The holes line up. Model A axles are cheap..there also is somebody in the classifieds who makes them, they're fabricated and kinda pricey. Yeah, just cut off the existing hangers that are on that rear close to the flange.
