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!
But I am putting them in the front were it was a coil suspension and is now going to be leaf springs
