Here is what I was talking about, except we bolted our springs to the frame instead of using U bolts.

It was a big jeep thing back in the day because it was cheap and easy to do in a couple hours.No need to drop the axles.Little more involved on and RBV,but it was just an idea to put out there.

Kind of like a double shackle setup. I've seen them that way but it has been a long time.
If I do inboard the leads I might give that a try

There's only one shackle and it is in it's original place.Just the mount is replaced with the leaf spring.

I hate mud!

It's a PITA to clean up. Every bushing and other things are squeaking and making noise now. It is fun playing in the mud and getting everything covered in mud....but the crap you have to do after the fun sucks.

You can still see where my truck has been parked the last week at my work. They just sprayed the surface black and the mud/clay is still there that has fallen off my truck, even after all the rain we got. Suprised my boss hasnt said a word yet.
