"If I am not mistaken he has the 5.5" LA but his rear axle is sitting a bit far forward. It does do this due to the fact that it flexes back as it comes up. His looks a bit more forward than mine though I only have the 4.5 inch leafs. I do believe you need to run boomerang shackles on those to give the spring the room it needs."
Correct... I am looking for some comparisons to see if this is common with the RE rear springs or if it just worked out that way for my application.
Since i am doing the 8.8 axle swap in a couple weeks I'll just have the fab shop make me some custom spring perches and/or get the 2+ Perch Kit from Ruff Stuff
That should make relocating the rear axle back an inch or two easier.
