    Those of you who have longer front springs. Show me a pic of your front spring mount. I am looking at a pair of S-10 main leaves I have. 53" from eye to eye. Problems I see are both eyes are large, there is no small eye like on the stock or aftermarket lift springs. So gonna need a longer than stock shackle. This makes the pinion angle worse so either shims or dropping the front mount as well as moving it towards the front or the end of the frame to compensate for the longer spring. I also want to move my front axle forward about 1.5"

    Did a search and had some good reading, but no pics.

    Thanks
