Thats awesome. Do you have any pictures of the leaf mounting?
Here ya go:







This one is when I first had the front mounts tacked in I later added a piece of 1x3 to the frame rails to get the front to sit a little bit higher and to strengthen the front end.

Thanks :yes: Does your leafsprings kind of angle in at the front? I've got a 46-55 (I believe) straight axle and it does that.

Yes the springs are farther apart at the rear than at the front. My axle is out of a 32 chevy car.
