    What length springs should I have gotten from Tuff Country for my 78? Can't seem to get the pin to line up with the axle.

    I'm not shure about the spring length but if it is close, try putting in the pin first and then hooking up to your front shackle and do the rear last. My frame is slightly twisted from a previous accident and I had to tweak it a little to get the front shackle to line up.

    Apparantly Tuff Country told me wrong,,, they said the longer half of the spring goes twards the rear. NOT,,, you would think the people who made the damn things would know which way they go on.
