Chassis help

im putting shorter fj40 springs on the rear of my cj and it seems that the solid hangar will have to sit right under one of the rear body mounts. where it just so happens that the chassis starts to bend. so half of the mount will be off the chassis. ive thought about it and all i can think of is putting a wedge of some sort in. will this work or do any of you have any better ideas? i do want to get an engineers report and im afraid it may not pass.

thanks

Re: Chassis help

Question, why put shorter springs on? Shorter springs cannot articulate as well as longer springs. If you are going to redesign you suspension I would think you would want to make it better, and not put a lot of time and effort into making it less flexible.

Re: Chassis help

ok so what would happen if i put longer springs on the rear?
does it matter that they are longer than the front?
will it effect the overall articulation front and rear (eg. make one of the front wheels lift off the ground)?

(i have already modified the front springs)
