Fester on my Safari I bought a kit that moved the axle over the springs, it came with brackets that lowered the front spring mount and extended the shackles. Sorry I don't remember the company I bought it from, that was over 20 years ago. You are lucky you can buy spindles for the front, those weren't available when I built Razz-Ama-Tazz, I had to cut the coils.

springs/spindles for the front. Flip/shackle is the ONLY way to lower 'glass leafed Astros. Ive done 6 of them...They are actually fairly easy. Unless you wanna go air ride smile

No air ride, not in the budget. . . . Now just have to decide if we are keeping the Astro or not.
