Need spring perches moved

Any recommendations on a shop (or person) in Reno who can do a good job relocating spring perches (on a 14-bolt axle)?

Thanks

No, I haven't cut the old ones off yet. I don't have a torch and I don't think it'd be fun to gring them off, so I was hoping to find someone who could cut, move, and reweld them (maybe I'll need new perches instead of reusing these?).

I was editing my post when you replyed!

Would it be better to use new ones than reuse mine? Probably huh?

The axle is sitting in my garage. The current axle under the blazer is a 14 bolt too but it's a 3/4 ton with 42.5" spring perches, where as the new one is a 1 ton cucv axle with 40.5" perches.

The tube diameter is 3 3/8"

just go down to summit, the new perches are only like $20. Send Deadandcompany a pm, he can do it and will do a good job.

xjmoser already offered to do it tomorrow but I had thought about dead too, but moser can do it tomorrow so it's on. Can't wait to get this thing under my blazer - it's got a detroit and disc brakes so it'll be a nice upgrade!

I picked up a pair of the perches at driveline services that look pretty good.
