Hey guys, I have a issue with trying to get the center pin of the leaf spring to line up to the hole in the mounting bracket of the axle.:banghead: I don't know if anyone else had problems with this or if this is just me. Any help on this would be great. the lift is a 2.5" by rough country if that means anything. Thanks for any help

I bolted the springs to the axle first. Then the rear of the leaf, then set the weight down to flex the spring out to the shackles.

yeah, check your perch pin hole for adequate diameter AND make sure everything is clean. probably wouldn't hurt to put a dab of grease/oil/butter/whatever on the pin to help it drop in the hole. :)
you could also try leaving the shackle loose or even disconnected, get the pin lined up/u-bolts snugged up a bit, then attach/fasten the shackle.

Thanks for the help guys, I loosened up the shackles and it went right in. Now I just gotta do the rear, lets hope for the best...
