So I am replacing my sagging springs with some new OME 2.5" lift springs. If I install like the directions say (connecting both ends of the springs to the shackle and frame), when I pull up the u-bolts the pin that fits in the hole under the spring perch is about 1 to 2 inches too far back. The only way I can get the u-bolts and plate to pull up correctly is to take the bolt out where the spring mounts to the frame in back (sorry, it's late and I can't remember the right terminology!!). Anyway, then it is impossible to get the spring connected in the back. Any trick to this? I did one side at a time, and the first side I did is not correct. I'm going to have to loosen it and try to get it lined up. These are the front springs......any help will be appreciated.....and no, they aren't backwards. Haha...
