For the rest..... This has been some GREAT information!!!! Thank You!!

I do have one last question....

I purchased U bolts and the spring perch and accessories for the axel to be bolted on top of the springs... Can I use U bolts and have the nuts pointing UP or do I need to purchase something else?
Im thinking possibly not. Would you be able to post a pic of this hardware? Will be able to tell you if you can at least use the u-bolts or not. You know, an axle flip alone will give you a good 4" drop. Its my understanding that it requires a c-notch but for chits and giggles, id install the axle upside down (above the springs if pads arent removed yet) with that hardware and see what you have.

Yep, just knock the brass bushing out of each y-hangar and you're good to go. If the posies springs come with the brass bushings installed, you'll have to knock those out too.
