Default 609 front axle in leaf sprung CJ

Considering building a 609 front axle for my cj8, and have a few questions:

1) with the leaf spring spacing on a cj front, how is the packaging side to side with getting leaf perches in there? Likely going to have a passenger drop with a th350 and dana 300 so keeping the pinion as far right is a priority..i'd prefer to go to a spider 9 bujt they are wide. Wasn't sure of the strength of the currie banjo style centers...

2) do the spider 9 offset housings have provisions for inner axle seals?

Inner seals yes, they are on the website. The housing tube to tube is about 18". If you look in the axle shaft page there is a cool excel sheet with some dimensions and profiles on it if it helps at all.

What's your spring pin center distance? I can give you some rough numbers if you need some.

I found that dimension on their website, I guess I need to go see what my pinion offset is today.
