We also welded the lower coil spring mounts together and set them in place on top of the axle. We centered and squared the axle where we wanted to clear the fuel tank. Then we set the axle at what we plan will be ride height with about 61⁄2 inches of uptravel from the spring perch to the metal of the bumpstop, and set the pinion angle. Next we lowered the frame onto the axle to get the correct angle of the spring perch at full stuff and tacked it in place.
