We have been making the many different ways to mount and use Coil Springs for a long time now. I thought it was time I showed the world if they didn't visit our website!

We can start with a simple Offset Coil bracket that has 3 different sized spring options...


A whole variety of spring tiedowns...Pigtail tiedown shown...


Then we have Link Mount/Coil Spring combination brackets...



We also have a ton of mounting options to choose from...

Question about the link coil mount. From the centerline of the axle how much higher does the lower coil cup sit? I am Looking to install it on a 86-91.5 Ford dana 60 and need to know if it will clear leaf spring casting on the drivers side.

They are 1.25" above the axle surface.

That helps, but can you get me a measurement please. I highlited what I need.
My problem is that the inside of the mount will be over the cast center section end, and I will have to trim it to fit. Basically openig up the radius to get it around, but also extra to get the link mount angled inward.
Im thinking it may be easier to use your spring perches, and just tabs, but I would really like everything tied together.

That section is 1.75" but if you aren't in a big hurry we should have an angled one in a couple of weeks.
