New leaf spring ride height

I just wanted to post some info on ride height in case anyone is considering a leaf spring swap. The ride height was my biggest fear about changing springs and there isn't much info out there.

Anyway, I went with the stock ride height Calvert Racing split monos and they are dead on!

Great because they are local for me. Did you also replace the bushing & U bolts. Do they sell them?
