Weld on spring pad for 2 inch wide springs. Includes one individual spring perch. Our spring perches have unique features like 1/4 inch steel construction, 6 inch contact area with spring, and multiple center pin holes for easy wheelbase adjustments. These are not the cheapest pads on the market but they are definitely the best. Unique offset pads make welding against the front differential a snap. Taller profile helps to create clearance for steering under spring but not suitable for spring-under applications.
When installing lifted rear leaf springs, it's best to rotate the pinion so it points directly at the rear transfer case output flange and use a CV style drive shaft. The best way to rotate the pinion is to cut off the old perches and weld in a new set at the proper angle. Normally the spring pin is installed in the center hole but you can also move the rear axle forward or backward 1 inch by using the optional holes. Made from 1/4 plate steel. Unpainted finish.
