In the rear of the truck we had a few rules we wanted to stick with. No lift blocks because we don't like axlewrap, and narrow springs because we had a special rear-steer axle made and we didn't want the tires to hit the springs. Our solution was to move the springs under the frame instead of out on the sides. This should meet all our needs by allowing us to run a lower lift spring and possibly give better articulation since the axle will now have more leverage on the springs, though towing may be a bit scary. We started by building front spring hangers for the frame from some 1/4-inch plate.
