Finished up the passenger rear.
New U-bolt spring plate, with integrated bump pad. Had to make some relief cuts so I could bend the corners up. I welded up the seam afterwards.
Drilled a 1.75" hole for the tube to slide up into the frame rail.
.25" plate got the same hole to strengthen the unibody rail where the bump stop will be welded on.
Welded the .25" plate to the tube.
Welded to the body.
This leaves me around 4" of up travel in the rear and around 3.5" up front, not including the little "squish" I'll get out of the bump stop.
