Axle spring offset plate
This plate was specifically designed for our first gen ram 4x4 leaf spring customers (72-93) to be able to move the front axle forward to gain tire clearance at the rear of the fender opening. (Can work great in the rear too)
It’s meant to replace the shim on the bottom of the skyjacker (and others) leaf packs that is there as a cheap leftover way from decades past to help driveline angles at the expense of good handling due to taking away needed positive caster. Sold in pairs
Super easy to install. Clamp your leaf, remove the existing center pin and shim (I like to remove the shortest leaf too if not the next one for softer ride. You can add our extended +1” shackle set or out +2” shackle kit to add some additional lift back that is lost from this). Bolt the new plate back in place with the new long center pin bolt with the new axle dowel pin 1” towards the front. After snugging it, cut/grind the remaining threaded end off the new center bolt smooth. When you install your leaf pack, tighten your u-bolts well and then re-torque after some miles. The center pin of a leaf is not intended to do any work, just an assembly aid. So keep those u-bolts tight. We’ve been wheeling with people who blame the center pin when this all comes loose and shears that tiny bolt!
