Lowering and Caltracs Issue

Hey Guys, I am installing the JTSVP ultimate rear lowering kit and Caltracs today. I have only put the lowering block on one side so far but it looks like the Caltrac bar is going to interfere with the overload spring. I do not want to get everything on and find out there is a problem. Any thoughts or ideas? Could the leaf springs be turned around and have the over load at the back? Cut or remove the overload?

Stone, I think we set a record! Problem solved in 12 minutes! Good chatting with you. Don't forget to cut down the bump-stops, or you will end up riding on them. I think Slither bent an axel doing that.

Thanks again Old Colt!! I have removed the "Slappers" already. What should I cut the bump stops down to? or how much should be removed?

Sorry guys, been years since I installed my JTSVP lowering kit but doesn't it come with new bump stops, like stubs? Or was that the front and you simply just remove the rears in their entirety? Clearly I don't have a truck anymore or else I'd look.
