Axle gusset question

]When my jeep got hit last month I ordered a set of Poly's Synergy Suspension C gussets for my Dana 30. Once they have been installed I noticed the coil springs are contacting the gussets. The first pic should be the passenger side at flex, if you look you can notice the rub spot is kinda shiny. The 2nd pic is the driver side stuffed due to the passenger side being flexed. Is anybody else running into this, and is it a problem? The springer are seated properly with the ends being in the channel on the mount. I Pm'd Pig a couple days ago to see what he had to say, but Im still waiting on a response.

Yes I have had my stock coil springs hit my Poly c-gussets since I installed them almost two years ago.

I'm pretty sure mine are going to hit, but no worries

ok I didnt notice any difference in the way it drives, I was just curious if it would lead to issues down the road.

Thanks.

don't mean to hijack but seems like knowledgeable people in here, does the axle have to come off or apart to have gussets welded on? or could i just drive on down to the welding shop with a jack and jack stand to get the wheel off and have them welder it up?

You can do it this way but you do need to be mindful of the heat on your balljoints. I used wet rags on my joints and moved to different areas to prevent too much heat on the balljoints. They have plastic sleeves inside them so you just need to take proper precautions. Many of us have done it this way. I have done it twice on different JK's.
