full size into a cj7

ok i have a 81 cj7 and keep breaking the 30 up front.{hubs, axleshaft ujoints} i have swapped in a GM350 SM420, 205,
i have the a GM 12 bolt for the rear but the front is a D44 and i'm wondering if anyone has any pics of how to either grind the housing for the springs or move the spring hangers over on the frame. and how much to move them. i'm using my stock superflexy springs ina SOA conversion. so PLEASE help i can make just about anythign i just want more ideas on what would be best or easiest.
thanks all.

No pics , but all you have to do is outboard the springs. From there you can hit the stock perches on the fron. O n the rear you still need to relocate them.

I'm told outboarding the springs is easier then it looks..

but that was by Dirt-Dog here who can probably swap a set of axle shafts with his eyes closed and fingers broken.
