I think I have seen pictures of this set up before and it just doesn't look right to me. When the shackle unloads it really makes for funky angles on the drive shaft when the shackles are on the other end. I have no personal experience, this is just an observation.

If he wants better flex, just get a new lift....

Rough country blows you'll never get the flex you want no matter what you do with those springs

don't do it, you will be blowing u joints every time it flexes. only do one or the other.
