frame/pumpkin interference

When adapting a full width Dodge d60 using outboard springs on a CJ , are there any issues with the pumpkin striking the frame under full compression.

Center section should clear without a issue, it would be the steering that might need to be addressed. The drag link could hit the frame under full stuff on the pass side, thats why most YJ guys need to notch the frame.

Now on a CJ it "might" clear but I highly dought it will, probally have the same issue. Another issue is the yoke might hit the down pipe's depending on the motor.
I know my HP 60 has chewd up my crossover pipe real bad, but if it didn't hit the pipe then it would hit the oil pan.

Because of the configuration of the Dodge d60 , I believe it has to be soa.

I can't see how the drag link can hit the frame on the drivers side as the steering box is on the inside of the frame.

This jeep will be daily driver with moderate off-roading primarily in winter so I will not need any excessive travel .

The engine I'm planning to use is a 4bt.
