Seams to me if the 1/4 inch is critical, it would be easy enough to design a spring pad to fit over the edge of the pumpkin. May have to build it a little taller, with a little more axle contact next to the center section to insure a good weld. I'd rather do that than to notch the center section. My .02

Look into Mountain Offroad (M.O.R.E.). They have offset units for the YJ axle when doing spring over. http://www.mountainoffroad.com/more.htm They are quality parts. Ed

yeah, i'd definitely make a spring perch to go over the pumpkin rather than grind away at it in an attempt to use the perch you have now.

Thanks for all the tips. I got it all figured out, I just outboarded the springs and it worked perfectly to clear the pumpkin.
