    Yes you can but you have to put the shackle flip on backwards since the springs are longer it will make the mount further back :xmas:

    i think im just gonna call and tell them about it cuz if i send it back it will be about 2-3 weeks before i get another one and i can just use my drill press to make the holes biggers and get them 2 line up. i just need some bigger bolts.
