Is it possible to put in narrower 66-77 Ford Bronco leaf springs on a second gen Tacoma? I am not into the whole thing on flexing, but I am looking for narrower leafs so that I can cut more frame behind the rear leaf spring shackles to improve approach/departure angles.
More specifically, I am trying to put in Early Ford Bronco Wild Horses leaf springs on a second gen (Dimensions 21 inch from front shackle mount to center, and 21 inch from center to rear shackle). The width of those springs are the same as a stock second gen. I am trying to cut as much frame as possible from the rear leaf spring shackles on back to convert it to a flatbed and improve approach/departure angles.
Will axle wrap be a problem?

What is your advice on this? Can this be done.
