Common way to make a Dodge axle fit, cut off removable driver side spring perch, move in 1/2 inch. Flush frame tubes with inside of frame, not split the difference like standard. This will get you about 1/4" per side. Use shims provided with front hanger to move springs outboard as much as possible, 2 washers on the inside. Axle will sit aprx 3/8ths to driver side. It is possible to weld the spring pin hole on passenger cast perch and move the position in slightly as Dodge used a wider spring than a Toyota spring. this will center the axle.
Formed shackle goes inside frame, strait on the outside, with 1/2 inch uhmw puck at top. Lower portion of shackle is drilled 1/2 inch, drill to your spring bushing size or build sleeve as needed.
Shackles are 5.375" eye to eye
Front Hanger is 2.750" from frame mounting surface to center of leaf spring eye hole.
