This is my first time installing a lift kit. I knew it would be tough, and it's no wonder that I've ran into an issue. Sorry, I don't know the official names of most of the parts, so i'll describe them as much as I can. The bolt and nut that is smack in the middle of the springs, (holds them together and provides the knob that goes into the hole on the axle spring plate.) well the nut bearly misses the hole on the top plate that the u-bolt nuts go on. This keeps the plate from sitting flush on the springs. I know that my springs are in the right direction (if there is one) because its the same distance from said nut to both spring eyes, and the shims are facing the right way (thick end forward). Has anyone else run into this problem? If so how did you get around it? I'm thinking I'm going to machine that hole bigger with the drill press, but I ran out of daylight so I will continue tomorrow. I really just want to know if anyone has any better ideas before I start in again tomorrow morning. Thanks for any and all help.
