    rework your spring hangers. the longer springs could probably give you a better shackle angle. before i got into the entire trail riding/rockcrawlin' craze, i was going to build my '72 into a 17" lifted, 44" tire wearing monster and even bought 73+ 12" springs for the front and had planned on reworking the hangers to make them fit. if we can mount 52" springs on the front, then i'm sure the couple more inches of spring length can also be done. shouldn't be too much work either way.
