Grinding front d44 for spring over...

Hi guys! It's been awhile since I've posted on here but I've been baby, OCS (yeah it's sir now!)...anyhow....

I have a spring under dana 44 in the front of my CJ, and I am looking to do a spring over when the weather warms a bit. How much should I grind into the differential? The d44 is from a wagoneer that I narrowed, so right now it uses the "factory" machined pad to set onto the spring. Any helpful hints or tips would be appreciated!

Here are some pics from my site. I ground it flat until it was 1/2" lower than the perch on the tube. Then I welded a piece of 1/2" plate to the machined area. You have to grind it down that much or you don't have much to weld to.
