    Can anyone post pics of there stock spring over axle suspensions? Can the spring over axle be done yourself, or would taking it some where be a better idea? I have a 1 and a half inch shackle with the stock springs i think, would the shackles still fit the SOA? Would 32 x 11.50 look good with the SOA?

    No. You will want 35's at the minimum to look right with a spring over. You can use the same shackles if you want. You need to cut, weld, etc to do a good job and you should really cut and turn the front axle to make it right. Do a search.
