I have the lub chart looking down from the top which I used to work out spring locations and that is where I figured the springs sat on the outside.........until our man Mike threw me a curve ball with half under and half to the side, I need to give that one some thinking. The spares parts manuals (although I do not know the model numbers) did help but now I am not sure.
I have worked on the side of and under the chassis setups but never seen that 1/2 1/2 layout here.
Thank you for the thought and the pictures it is appreciated, and thanks Mike for throwing me under the bus (although that's exactly what I really need )
Geordie, here's the pic of the rear hanger outside the frame. I'll try to get a pic of the front springs today so you can see the 50/50 split. If you notice on the rear hanger they bolt to the side and wrap under the frame rail. The fronts do that too only the center of the spring is 1/2 under the bottom corner of the rail.

Don't ask me how I know all this but let me also say don't use a cheap Harbor Freight press on the bus, it doesn't survive real pressure. I did replace some parts with stronger ones and also upgraded all the bolts so it's still alive.
