On Daniel's Pre-Trip inspection guide it says that "The difference between a Hanger and a Mount is that Hangers are much, much smaller. I could go technical but don't over complicate this. The Hangers are in the front, Mounts in the back...."

I was studying like that all this time and now I am in Prime training programme and they are saying that the one in the front is the spring mount. So I am confused now. So which is correct?

Pre-trip Inspection:

A pre-trip inspection is a thorough inspection of the truck completed before driving for the first time each day.

Federal and state laws require that drivers inspect their vehicles. Federal and state inspectors also may inspect your vehicles. If they judge a vehicle to be unsafe, they will put it “out of service” until it is repaired.

I just tested out at prime yesterday, for the pretrip here, both front and rear are your spring hanger mounts or just spring mount and make sure to say, "my spring mounts both front and rear are properly mounted and secure, not cracked bent or broken, and no missing mounting bolts"

The pretrip for each state can be slightly different, the sheet you get from prime is basically word for word what the state of Missouri requires, so go by that, keep it simple, you dont need to get technical at all
