    Can you guys running full width front axles post some close up pics of how you outboarded the springs? I've found a few different kits but they all seem to mount the shackle below the frame. I was hoping to find some that mount it a little higher cause of the angles of the front diff. Oh yeah it's also with a SR.
    Thanks for your help guys this is a great site.

    That's what i was looking for, thanks. I'm worried about the shackle being mounted under the frame. With the shackle that low, won't it cause the pinion to point towards the ground causing extreme u-joint angles when the pass side is fully drooped?
