Those traction devices are designed to be installed on standard eye leaf springs... mid or reverse eye springs would mean monkeying with the geometry of the device, and it's relation to the spring, directly affecting it's effeciency and/or ability to load the chassis. When it comes to top-shelf products like Cal Tracs, I see it this way: I'm not an engineer, I didn't design or build the thing, I'm sure the manufacturer knows a whole helluva lot more about the product than I do. For best results, I'm inclined to go with the manufacturer's recomendation
