Cj7, FSJ N/T D44's install-spring outboard question

I have a set of Wagoneer 44's I have torn down and am rebuilding.
I am cleaning them up now and getting ready to paint, then assemble with regearing. 79 NT Waggy front (maybe put in a spartan) 89 NT waggy rear with a true trac. 4.10 thick gears. SUA, with waggy steering linkage.

I am currently planning on outboarding the front, haven't decided on a shackle reversal or not at this point...is it worth the hassle?

Next question...outboard the rear as well or just relocate the perches? Will there be a difference in handling improvement if I were to outboard the rear or not?

Just move the rear spring perches on the axle. On the front, I'm not a fan of shackle reversals...other opinions will differ I'm sure. Any change in suspension will change handling, but will also affect other things. A lot depends on how you use your Jeep if it will be good or not.
