This is how the front leaf-spring setup looked shortly before the front axle was installed. Notice the additional tubular crossmember spanning the area between each front spring hanger. This additional support is necessary because the ORU kit required removal of nearly half of the OE crossmember. You can also see how ORU's kit incorporates a track-bar mount right into the new bumpstop mounts (arrow). This addition is known to tighten up steering response significantly.
