I looked around here, but I'm still a bit confused about RUF. Is it taking a set of rear Toyota springs, and using them as is for front springs? What about the difference in length? Is relocation of hangers/shackles necessary?

The spring closest to the camera in the first two pictures, is the front spring I took off the 85 chassis. The middle spring is what I got at the junkyard. The farthest spring, is what I created from the two. If I recall correctly, I looked at putting those junkyard (rears) on the front hanger/shackle, but they didn't look like they were gonna fit without a lot of work, so i just cut up the rear leaves, and shuffled them around till I had something that looked good to me.

The third and fourth pics show the front leaf spring shackles that came on the 85.
