I hope this turns out. I took some pics of AlphaCat's rear end setup and colored it to make it clearer (for ease of acuity)

Rick,

Mine are definately wedges. They taper from 1/4" thick at the front to 1/2" thick at the back. If you've been following the other thread on these, you'll see that they are a 3 degree wedge angle.

Looks good cj- I have everything bolted together without the wedges, but I have them modified them to go back in. All I have to do now is grind the slots in the sides of the wedges for u-bolt clearence, cause the '69 stang shock plates bolt pattern is closer to the leaves that the original cougar design.

Axle locators?

Not really axle locators, Rick. The axle is located to the spring by the spring binder bolt. The binder bolt goes through a hole in the wedge and still is long enough to fit into the center hole in the axle mount.
