    Just got mine done last week. I moved the front hanger forward 5" and the rear I used ORD 2 1/2" shackle flip with there 6" HD shackle and bolted it to the factory location for the 56" springs. I also went with the 5" lift Tuff Country 64" rear spring. As far as I can tell, it moved the axle forward about 1", at full compression, it should be real close to the factory bumpstop
