I left it there, I trimmed a half inch off of the coil spring bracket and pushed it tight against the track bar bracket on the frame

Did you men you are thinking of doing a tri 4 link cuz you already have a four link.

Man that turned out good, and yes a tri 4 link is what I'm wanting to do, so I can do away with the track bar and move the rear back to center the wheel in the wheel well

on the rear or inside the frame i just cut off the ears of the back side of the mount with a long blade saw zall. theeeen bump the suspension with no coils and just eyeball it. no need to measure unless your super picky. on the passenger side where the trac bar mount is i just cut off some of the stock mount to get it closer. about an inch. prep the frame for welding and tack it in place. once tacked and it looks good weld her up. i weld all that i can and its good to go. its just an upper spring perch it doesnt need all kinds of crazy bracing or anything.
