Spring Questions

Right now I am SOA with 35's using stock springs and a 2 inch shackle lift. I want to ditch the shackles because I want it to handle better. I have 2 pairs of rear 4 inch pro comp springs. I was thinking of taking out 2 leafs and running them on all four corners and then getting stock height shackles. My question is will the wider rear springs fit in the spring perch in the front and will i need new spring hangers as well? I need to know that way i can order 2 pairs of rear shackles.
Thanks again [img]images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]

The front and rear frame hangers are the same. The front spring's bushing makes up for the 1/2" less width in the hanger. All you need is rear shackles and shackle brackets for the front to use rear springs on the front. Also, you will need u-bolt plates.
