I had a similar question in post of mine, so far the consensus seems to be 47" to center of the mounts' eyes. When done with weight on the rear end your shackles should be at a 45 degree angle so the distance may be +/- 47", I plan on just tacking mine to begin with in case I need adjustments. I also cut short sections of 3" tube to weld my brackets onto, then weld the tube to the axle, I also plan to gusset the mount to the tube

I measured a model A rear axle last night, and the distance between centers on the perches was 49 1/2". I was surprised, because I thought it would be less than say a '40 rear axle, but my '40 rear has a distance of about 47" between center points.

Hope this helps.

Contact Posie's - they can tell you what the distance is.

Sorry Daisy - Posie's rod and custom makes springs and kits for hot rods. Their mounting kits come with the dimensions for mounting the brackets.
