f250 axle spring perches

got a 79 dana 44 f250 front axle that im getting ready to swap in a yj and was wondering will leaf springs give enough to sit on the factory spring perches on the dana 44 axle its like 0.75 off on each side or do i need to move them out im keeping the axle full width

Yes, you need to outboard the front springs.

Not Really. I have a 78 HP44 under my 89YJ and did not have to move anything. Just losen the front shakles and sit the springs down on the perches. They will have a slight outward look to them, but will work fine. Only is 1/2" wider than Jeep spring width anyway. Mine is not that noticeable, but I know it is like that.

I agree, just use a pry bar and shove the springs over a little. You only need to outboard on the 1980+ axles.

Well shit, learn something new every day. I figured they spaced as far apart as the later axles too.
