No it wouldn't have been easier, I used a wheel to grind down the top of the weld to tear the bracket off. The weld on the frame is extensive and protrudes a solid 1/2" up the frame making it easier to sawzall then snap the bracket off after grinding. I see this as the most efficient means of doing the modification.

3/4 ton (purple) torsion keys
belltech 2508 spindles
bilstein f4-be5-6500-h0 front shocks / f4-be5-6501-h0 rear shocks
belltech 23305 5" coil springs
coil isolators removed
airlift 60769 helper bags with 0 psi
jeep wrangler jk rear sway bar links
trimmed front jounce stops

I'm in the process of installing 7" coils but need to figure out my rear shock situation so I ordered a few different applications at work to test next week. I'd like to drop the front 1/2" so the truck tucks tire and sits at 29" at all four corners.

Can you do the free travel mod with the rear springs still in?

No, you'll have to pull the springs but the suspension needs to be at full droop. Be careful cutting the driver's side next to the gas tank.
