Rear Suspension

A few rear suspension questions.. A Body

I want to get new hangers from and rear, I'll be going all poly bushings and probably stiff leaf springs with a 1" drop from Espo. Do they make the offset hangers to move the springs in 3/4" to fit stock A body-style leaf springs instead of SS springs? I want to move them in to fit larger tires without flares but I'm not sure if they make them. Do the hangers shown above work to move them in?

When you buy the relo kit from MP, you get offset shackles, and an offset spring hanger for the front. The ones pictured will not work. You will also need to buy MOROSO perches, thats it.

Anyone have any recommendations for rear springs?

I will have .990 bars, 1 1/8" front sway, 3/4" rear bar, poly bushings, the rest of the stuff is in my sig.

I was thinking Espo 6 leafs with a 1" drop, maybe asking if they could make them a bit extra stiff.

The ESPO springs out of the box are very good. I doubt they actually make anything there, so custom stuff would be unlikely. The factory rate is 130in/lbs. I wouldn't worry about it. One ride in my car and you'd all be believers, nothing too fancy, just right.
