    Has anyone put rear springs up front ? I saw a thread in the 1st gen. forum and it sounds like a common mod on early models. I looked at the front spring hangar, and there are holes already there for moving it forward. Will I need to move the rear hangar back ? My main concern is ride height with the stock rr spring. Witch way will it go ? Up or down ? /forums/images/graemlins/ears.gif
