another soa question

ok got my knuckles tuned at 5 deg and my pinion at 15 deg, i turned my stock springs around(back to front front to back)to get a little more wheel base,the problem is at and near full compression my pinion rotates up almost hitting my oil sump and the pinion angle is way too steep for the drive shaft to work,any ideas? or should i just flip my leaf springs back to original position and forget about the extra wheel base? your help will be appreciated

Dont snug it till it fits, bend it slightly so that it lines up better. If your pinion is binding at that point anyway, maybe fab up a bump stop to keep it at a happy working angle. IMO droop is more important than compresion, and to much compresion on stock springs will result in failure.

That is exactly what mine looked like after I bent them to fit, and they slid right through the u-bolt plate holes.
