Explorer Axle Mount Questions?

Hey what size spring perches do I need to order 1-3/4", 2", 2-1/2" or 3"? Also on the shock mount do I need to order the shock pins or would the ones that come with the shocks work?

Also I just ordered traction bars from James Duff will they work with the f-150 u-bolts and plates? I ordered the 31 spline James Duff mounting plates.

I am ordering them from this site.

Thanks to anyone and sorry for all the questions

I got alot of info from this page just decided to start a new thread so people would see

you need 2.5" spring perches.....and a grade 8 bolt is your best bet for the lower shock mount....

2.5" wide perches for 3" tubes, I dont think they make perches for the 3.25" tubes, might have to grind 3" ones out

I bought the Mopar 2.5" universal mounts from summit. $12 for them. They need to be ground out to fit the radius of the explorer axle, but thats nothing the hand grinder and 5 minutes can't fix, hell I had to do that to the suicidedoors.com shock mounts I had welded on it at one time.
