I havent had the springs off mine yet, but whatever the sping bolt head height is, is the minimum height
from axle housing to the spring mounting surface. I'd hazzard a guess at 3/8"? Have him cut them longish.
I think the Breeze units are about 6" or so. Also add a bracing plate from the old perch to the new.
When welding them on, keep in mind the sami tubes are only about 1.8 thick or so. keep the heat concentrated
on the perch, not the tube, unless you pre heat the perch. If you do, treat it like your welding 1/8 as far as
welder heat controls. Bottom line, get good penetration, but dont overheat the tubes.
I think the front pass perch needs 2 different Dia holes. look at your axle.
Going minimum height is good, you are less liable to have as much spring wrap since there will be less leverage.
