well pro comp shipped my two brand new front springs to replace my crappy ones that are too short. i got the new ones in and they are 1/2 inch shorter than the short ones. so i am destined to a shackle reversal and move the shackles closer together so i get the right width and no more camming over and riding on the frame.

I know this sounds cheezy but if cash is a problem consider tack welding bump stops to your frame so your shackle won't go back far enough to lock like that. Should have no effect at all on articulation. I don't see how a shackle reversal will make you spring grow any longer, so it may still lock just the same.
