Shock tabs for Expo axle flip

I've got my spring perches. Just need to find the right tabs to buy. I've seen a few styles but wasn't sure what I should get. Could someone shove me in the right direction?

Which ones should I get? Problem I'm having is that the axle tube is 3 inches right? Most of the products say they fit 1 5/8" tubing or smaller.

Thanks! Is there any science involved with this? I've got a shop lined up to do the welding but really want to jump into myself.

For the sake of future searches I just found these. They're for a 3" tube

I had to cut a little off to make them fit, but they look nice.

Yeah, f, well, I'll hit up 4wheelparts tomorrow to see if they have the kind I posted in my second comment.

If they don't I guess I'll need some made. I forgot you did metal work Kevan.
