    front axle 32? you talk tube or H,both were used. H is like most ,I like the spring forword 48 my self best. But lower for eye/tube shocks can be very simple,just drill hole in too beam center rib,add blot an spacer,on any H type can just. If needed a offset can be added like I did so I could used a little longer shocks. This is best photo I have from the last restore I did too my own 48axle in 28A. With tube you can make"L" bracket that goes on bone bolt.
