Default xj coil question

an xj coil is not flat on the bottom, so what do i do about mounting it when i swap my axle next week? i was planing on just making a flat bottom mount, but i dont know if i will have any ill effects.

i have checked around, ballistic fab, ruff stuff, poly, and no one has an "offset coil thing" like the xj does.

any ideas?

Cut one off from an XJ axle and adapt it to the new axle.

x2, or buy new spring mounts. The coil should be relatively flat along the top and bottom edges though.

What do you think is going to happen to the bottom of the spring when the height of the vehicle is set upon it?
