Question ZR2 Leaf over axle mod

Hi just wondering if anyone has relocated the leaf springs over the axle in their zr2 blazer or jimmy. If so what have people done in order to match the height in the front and is it worth the trouble of trying? Thanks

Non ZR2, but my lift kit came with brackets to convert the rear to spring over axle. Maybe rough country would sell just those brackets without the rest of the kit?

On every ZR2 I know of that has done an axle flip on the rear, they put in a solid axle up front, usually a D44. A lot of work but worth it as long as you don't take short cuts.
