shackle angle with vehicle on stands?

I need to get my rig into a "roller" asap. \It's up on jack stands. I have the axles all ready to go as well as the leaf springs, hangers, brackets, etc... Roughly what should I be aiming for on the shackle angle with the vehicle on stands and no weight (i.e. axles hanging from) on the springs? 54" front springs, 60" rear. Both springs having the shackles at the rear and fixed eye up front.

Sorry, I did post this in newbee tech a couple days ago but no responses yet and it's kinda urgent. there's always like 3x the people viewing this section than that one too so...

(Flat length of spring) - (shackle length, eye to eye) + 1/2" = distance from fixed hanger to shackle hanger
