You may want to change the spring perches on the rearend itself so that the springs will ride nicely. I threw on factory type 5 leaf springs with the original "monoleaf" type perches on the original 10 bolt rearend and the ride was harsh, nor did I feel safe mentally about it either. Something about seeing that huge gap between the perches and the lift bars made you cringe. You could always go with a quality set of replacement monoleafs from Jegs or Summit. They have them listed in their suspension section and are reasonably priced.
