Depends if it has extended spring hangers. The 1-ton had spring
hangers with two holes in, and the shackle plates are longer, with a
spacer bar in the upper holes. If it has these then it's a 1-ton and
needs the 1-ton hoses as the axles are further away from the chassis.
Otherwise you can use normal Series 3 LWB hoses.
If you're unsure, measure them and then go armed with the measurements
when you get the new ones.
