Mini tub w/Hotchkis springs

Hey guys, I've been away for a while but it's now time to drag the cover off my 67 and start building again. I am having a hard time trying to decide how far I want to go with this build. I have already rebuilt all the suspension with a TVS kit and poly bushings front & rear. Now I am considering a mini tub but need some confirmation that my Hotchkis springs will work with the DSE kit.
Also, to what length will i need to cut my rear end to. I may upgrade to a 12bolt and will most likely maintain drums in the rear.

Re: Mini tub w/Hotchkis springs

As far as I know you can use your springs but you have to weld new spring perches.
You can order a wheel with the right backspacing for your rear or better yet get the wheel you like and build your rearend around it
