I have the old mono spring off the driver side. Questions:

I am going to have to cut the rubber cushions that sandwich the spring to the axle. By cutting off the 1/4" that they recommend it means there will be some metal on metal between the spring "housing" on the axle and spring itself. Is this right or going to be a problem?

Since I am going from a mono leaf to a multileaf spring it does not appear that the plate with the shock mount and the plate on the axle will be flush, ie metal to metal like before. Is that right?

On the replacement springs the front bushing that is already installed is offset. It is off set in the opposite direction that the original spring is. Both new springs are offset in the same direction. It does not appear that there is a driver/passenger spring.

Does anyone have pics of the final appearence?
