    How high do you want it and do you have measurements from the '87?

    Positioning of the shackles will determine the arc of the leaf and have an effect on how high it will be. I am not sure , maybe I'm interpreting your question wrong , but you are taking 3/4 ton leafs and putting them under what had 1/2 ton leafs ,right? If they were the same length to start with , you wouldn't need to change bracket (unless width is different) distance-again my interpretation- by bracket I'm thinking what I used to call a ' shackle'. I'm OLD............please correct me if I'm wrong!
