Thanks for the comments.
As I said in the earlier post, new rear leaf springs.. 63" chevies from a Ttora member.
I ordered creeper joints from trail gear.
And front brackets from Ballistic fab. Bracket needed to be moved forward 7" in order to accomodate the longer springs.
Some good looking welds from my brother.
Cleaning up the old shackles, had to cut them 2" shorter since the springs were taller.
Shackle angle and leaf springs mounted
It was time for a new rear bumper as well, something that would actually be strong. 3x6" square tubeing .120wall.
Uber simple design..
My welds for the d rings, meh.
Waiting for paint to dry........
Loaded to go back home.
